Dome Air Quality
The dome’s unique design and conditions allow for an indoor experience that resembles outdoor conditions. BJES Columbus has 114,000 square feet of indoor turf and sports performance space with 65’ ceiling height and no obstructions. This translates to 5,808,367 cubic feet in an air supported structure that has a continual fresh air turnover. These air quality conditions have resulted in domes to serve as alternatives for overcrowded schools, hospitals, and other vital institutions. During the first wave of the pandemic, Columbia University quickly transitioned its upper Manhattan soccer dome into a 288-bed field hospital. Similarly in China, where air quality has long been an issue, domes have been used as safe alternatives to outdoor spaces for years. Please read the link below which provides insight from the dome manufacturer along with a letter certified by an engineer that speaks to the air quality of our dome structure.
We understand that the topic of COVID restrictions will elicit strong opinions on both ends of the spectrum. Even with the above-mentioned conditions; spacing, cleaning protocols, and mask requirements there will be people whose choice will be to stay away. We respect that choice and will honor the commitment of the time, space, program, training, etc.
