In addition to the NHL size rink, new Player and Referee Locker Rooms, a “Warm-up Room”, and mechanical space for the rink’s ice making equipment will be provided.
InLand Design, LLC of Exton, PA provided the civil and land development design engineering for the project, which will include improved access to and parking at the facility.
The General Contractor for the project is Dylan Enterprises of Boyertown, PA. Schlosser Steel Buildings, Inc. of Hatfield, PA is providing a Star Building Systems “pre-engineered” building to seamlessly match the exterior of the existing facility. The “cold slab”, ice making and rink equipment is being provided by B K Mechanicals, Inc. of West Chester.
The building design was recently completed, and is currently being reviewed by Upper Providence Township to issue a building permit to the Owner. C.D. Professional Sports, LP anticipates construction to start in the near future, with completion scheduled in the 3rd Quarter of this year.
Use of the new rink by area hockey teams and skaters is anticipated to begin by year’s end.
