This new complex consisted of a 7,000± m² multi-purpose community facility containing an NHL sized ice surface, conference centre, childcare centre and a walking concourse. Structural design involved using a combination of aesthetically appealing hybrid glulam/steel trusses with a curved top chord, reinforced concrete and structural steel framing. 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 cast-in-place concrete. 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.
