Centene Community Ice Center

Centene Community Ice Center is a new 4 sheet facility that will be home to the St. Louis Blues new practice facility.

B32 was hired to design, consult, and manage construction for the duration of the project. With any multisheet facility, the challenges of meeting the high standards of uniform ice quality, flexibility of individual ice temperature control for each sheet of ice; while minimizing energy use and capital costs as much as possible. Meeting these goals are far greater for multisheet facilities compared to single sheet facilities. These challenges were amplified with this new 4-sheet facility by adding NHL level expectations throughout the facility, an outdoor ice sheet with uncontrolled ambient conditions, and providing a flexible, common refrigeration system that met the budget conscious project approach.

Our Role: Subconsultant. Ice System Design (refrigeration system, 3 indoor ice rinks and 1 outdoor ice rink, 4 dasher board systems) and consulted on site layout, building layout, etc.
