This new complex consisted of a Preparation of construction documents and construction services for complex consisting of an 11,000± m² multi-purpose community facility containing 2 ice surfaces (NHL and Olympic sized) with seating capacities of 1500 and 500, meeting rooms, community events room, full kitchen and a 3 lane walking concourse. Structural design primarily involved structural steel framing with compositely designed floors used for economy, fire resistance and vibration resistance. In addition, the concourse area above the dressing rooms was designed using reinforced concrete construction resulting in a cleaner appearance in areas exposed to view and the bleachers were constructed using precast concrete for economy and reduced construction time. As structural consultants, Eastern Designers was able to meet the intent of the Architect’s design by utilizing unique and sophisticated structural analysis and design.
