The Plymouth Ice Center project involved the addition of a third NHL-size ice sheet to the existing ice arena. The addition also included seating for 492 spectators, team rooms, support spaces, a cafe/lounge, and a complete re-design of the main entry and concessions area. The design incorporated “green building materials” for increased energy efficiency and applied a variety of methods to reduce energy usage.
Design staff worked with the City of Plymouth to create a new identity for the facility that serves 40 youth hockey teams, adult hockey and figure skating clubs, and area schools. Accomplishing the goal as the area’s finest ice facility, the arena’s community appeal was enhanced with the addition of an internet cafe and lounge with wireless access points.
