Spruce Grove, Alberta
City of Spruce Grove
With the growing population in Spruce Grove, the city was experiencing a shortage of outdoor arenas, particularly on the west side. After researching several locations, the City of Spruce Grove decided to partner with the Tri Leisure Centre (TLC) to build an NHL regulation-size outdoor arena on the field adjacent to the TLC. Having successfully worked with JEN COL Construction on many projects, the City approached JEN COL to provide design options and budgeting for the outdoor arena.
The scope of the project included grading to re-direct surface water runoff away from the existing building and away from the new rink location. This was completed with new concrete swale and culverts installed under an adjacent access road. Major scopes of work included concrete slab on grade for the rink base, complete dasher board package including a covered shelter and concrete sidewalk to allow resident access.
The City also wanted this to be more than just a winter space, so to adapt to other seasons sleeves were embedded into the concrete slab to allow for three full-size pickleball courts and four basketball upstands.
