Fogarty Curling Rink

With space at a premium in the Twin Cities area, this privately funded facility was searching for options to add a curling rink to its existing two sheets ice arena and filling a void for curling sheets in the area.  As part of the project, Stevens designed an industrial grade ammonia ice system that not only serves the new 6-sheet curling facility but also serves the original ice arena replacing an aging R-22 direct system.  This cost-effective and energy-efficient ice system solution provided the support the Owner needed to move forward with the project.  The facility opened January 1, 2013 and has exceeded expectations in all categories including performance, efficiency, revenue, new member sign-up, and tournament registrations.
