Old Dominion University Kornblau Field at Ballard Stadium Earns LEED Certification

Completed in 2019, Moseley Architects’ renovation of Old Dominion University’s Kornblau Field at Ballard Stadium achieved certification through the Green Building Certification Institute’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®). The project consists of an open-air building and select interior spaces with sustainability features that include parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles, exterior lighting designed to reduce light pollution and non-potable water used for irrigation. Water efficiency measures are estimated to conserve 35,000 gallons per year, equivalent to 37% in savings, in addition to energy efficiency features projected to reduce energy use by 18%.

Additional sustainability features in design and construction include:

Materials and Resources

  • 78% of construction waste diverted from a landfill
  • 26% of building materials made up of recycled content
  • At least 40 building materials with publicly available Environmental Product Disclosures and Health Product Disclosures

Indoor Air Quality

  • An indoor air quality management plan was implemented during the construction and preoccupancy phases
  • All adhesives, sealants, paints, and coatings meet LEED VOC content thresholds
  • Floorscore®-certified flooring material
  • Composite wood products without added urea formaldehyde
