Leonard Louie Fieldhouse Offers an Award-Winning Recreational Experience to Local Residents

Engineered Systems details the exciting sustainable features and building amenities of the Wight & Company designed Leonard Louie Fieldhouse.

“Chicago’s new 30,000-sq-ft Leonard Louie Fieldhouse (previously the Ping Tom Memorial Park Fieldhouse) may be small in stature compared to its neighboring downtown skyscrapers, but it’s made a larger-than-life impression on the local Chinatown residents who, until it opened a few months ago, had been living without a single park or recreation facility for two full generations.”

“Designed by Chicago-based architects, design builders Wight & Company and MEP engineering firm, Environmental Systems Design (ESD), the Ping Tom Memorial Park Fieldhouse was built with future generations in mind. The design, its LEED Gold-status pending, features high efficiency lighting, distributed WiFi, HVAC systems connected to a geothermal well field, and state-of-the-art amenities including a gymnasium, clubroom, full-size competition pool, zero depth pool, and fitness rooms.”
