Construction Update - May 2018

The PIP Roof Project was implemented to provide the existing facility with protection from snow and rain events and sun glare, thus reducing maintenance during the ice-making season, potentially extending the winter season for ice users, and providing relief from summer sun and rain showers.  
 
The PIP Roof project includes:
  • Upgraded lighting has been installed to improve visibility on the rink surface and under the picnic shelter area  
  • Perimeter architectural lighting is in place for access to and from the facility  
  • All of the lighting is controlled by simple, push-button controller and timers
  • The picnic shelter area has been expanded for events such as the PAR Picnic, and includes improved lighting and electrical receptacles to address basic electrical power needs 
  • Improved maintenance access, including new concrete ramps at the mechanical building (for ice resurfacer) and south double doors (for added service access) are in place
  • Asphalt aprons will be completed once the plants open this Spring
  • New benches are to be installed for players/skaters
