NHL Arena Upgrades

Description

 

PARIC Corporation proudly partnered with the St. Louis Blues and Enterprise Center on the dramatic renovation of several areas in the arena. These renovations were coordinated using multiple teams at the same time to meet the challenging schedule of an active sports arena and entertainment venue.

Ice Rink Replacement

The complete demolition and reconstruction of the ice rink was the most labor-intensive piece of the improvements. This Olympic size ice rink was removed and rebuilt in a record-breaking six weeks. As part of this construction process, 50 concrete trucks laid 500 yards of concrete in one continuous 11-hour pour, to create a seamless “super-flat floor.” Also, 350 tons of sand was compacted, and 2.5 miles of permafrost pipe got installed. All of this to keep the ice perfectly chilled. Another 11.4 miles of steel refrigerant piping got laid throughout.  Now, this new ice rink provides a high-quality ice surface for NHL games, NCAA Ice Hockey tournaments, U.S. Figure Skating Championships, and other national and international ice-related competitions. This upgrade also includes efficiency and green-initiative improvements for managing the ice.

Scoreboards, Sound System, & Lighting

Other upgrades to the arena are the new center-hung scoreboard and ribbon board display. As for the center-hug scoreboard, it is a three-ton scoreboard that features twelve screens and is almost twice as large as the old scoreboard. The LED ribbon board added to the first mezzanine level is the first complete 360-degree ribbon board display in the NHL and has a display area of 2,800 sq. ft. There were also several other lighting and sound upgrades made throughout the arena.  These upgrade will have a significant impact on the fan experience in the stadium and at home while watching on TV.

Locker Rooms, and VIP Areas

The St. Louis Blues main locker room and NCAA locker rooms were gutted and renovated to meet the needs of today’s professional athletes. Additional changes include a more modern family and entertainment flex space for family members and VIP guest. In addition, there were also updates to the press and media workspaces, in an effort to provide the latest technology and equipment.

To meet the growing need of more premium space a 132-Seat Theater Box section provides a premium seating experience and includes access to a 44-seat Bar and Lounge with a personal Concierge. The suite level bathrooms received a complete update, as well as renovations to the restrooms and several concession areas on the Plaza and Mezzanine levels.
