Mr. Ward has over 20 years experience in civil and mechanical engineering fields. His education and engineering experience uniquely qualifies him for the specialized design requirements of ice systems. With his experience in fluid hydraulics, pumping and piping systems, heat transfer, refrigeration, thermodynamics, structures and materials, Scott has developed a specialty in designing ice systems.
He has been involved in over 200 ice rink projects since 1997, including professional practice facilities, Division 1 college venues, multi-sheet community arenas, and outdoor ice rinks. Scott is integrally involved in each ice rink project.
Scott brings first-hand experience to this project both as a professional designer and as a user of these facilities. As an avid life-long hockey player, fan, supporter or youth hockey, coaching coordinator, and 15 years as coach of youth hockey programs; Scott has visited and used countless ice arena facilities. This experience has proven instrumental in applying practical insight to ensure system and spaces are designed to meet the specific needs of each facility and their performance and operational goals.
