The Hershey Centre Community Rinks

Mississauga, Canada

The success of the Hershey Centre Arena Complex led the City of Mississauga to engage our team once again to provide expansion plans for the community rinks portion of this complex.  This phase of the project involved the subsequent addition of two rinks located alongside the existing single pad rink, in accordance with the original master plan.  The design of the new interconnected rinks is based on a central support spine, in a back-to-back configuration on two levels.  The grade level supports the needs of the participants, providing access to change areas.  The upper level serves the needs of spectators, including tiered seating capacity of 300 persons per rink.  Open viewing areas within the rinks are linked to an upper level, viewing gallery, serviced by a generous concessions area with casual seating areas providing views to both rinks below.(in joint venture with Parkin Architects Ltd.)
