Shakopee Ice Arena

In a state with over 220 ice rinks, new facilities are becoming more rare. However, this growing south metro community knew the only way to satisfy the demand for ice and
community activities was to build a new 2-rink ice arena, new community center, and convert its existing single rink facility into an aquatic center.

Working with an experienced ice arena and community center architectural firm, B32 Engineering Group designed a long-term, energy efficient solution for the ice systems. As with any multi-sheet ice facility, flexibility is key to successful operation. The ammonia-based indirect ice system was designed to
maximize flexibility by adding controls for individual ice temperature settings, nighttime setback, etc. The system is designed to make it easier to change between ice and dry floor events and to operate in any
combination of these modes.
