Cronin Ice Arena
At Dellbrook | JKS, we have the professional expertise required to construct high-performance Ice Skating Rinks. The demanding infrastructure and associated mechanical, electrical & utility services essential for an Arena of this caliber calls for seasoned veterans. The first stage of this state-funded, custom-designed skating rink was to demolish the existing rink to make room for the new. Demolition of any scope requires stringent precautions. These were compounded for the Dellbrook | JKS team due to an extremely tight site.
The all purpose rink has one sheet of NHL regulation size ice measuring 85′ x 200′ with underground heating that prevents frost build-up and can be used year round. Environmentally friendly products are used throughout the skating rink including non ozone depleting ammonia refrigerant and non-toxic propylene heat transfer fluid. The resultant structure is one story, 40,000 square feet consisting primarily of structural steel and masonry building materials. A dramatic roofline tops off this state-of-the-art ice skating arena.
Additional features of the building included:
- Four team rooms with showers
- Officials’s rooms
- Manager’s office
- Conference/function room
- Concession area
- Skate shop
- Public restrooms
The Dellbrook | JKS served as Construction Manager at Risk (CM at Risk) on this project. CM at Risk is a formal contract process that designates the Construction Manager as a member of a collaborative project team. Its purpose is to centralize responsibility for the construction under a single contract and obtain a bonded guaranteed maximum price.
