Scottrade Center Renovations
PARIC Corporation proudly partnered with the St. Louis Blues and Scottrade Center to dramatically renovate several areas of the arena. The most noticeable for the players will be the complete demo and reconstruction of the ice rink itself.
The rink was removed and rebuilt in a record-breaking 6 weeks with crews logging over 10,000 man hours.
An astounding 50 concrete trucks laid 500 yards of concrete in one continuous 11-hour pour, to create a seamless “super-flat floor.”
To keep the ice perfectly chilled, 350 tons of sand were compacted and 2.5 miles of permafrost pipes installed. An additional 11.4 miles of steel refrigerant piping was then looped and laid throughout the rink.
The new rink will provide a competitive ice surface for NHL games, NCAA Ice Hockey tournaments, U.S. Figure Skating Championships and other national and international ice-related competitions. Upgrades also include efficiency and green-initiative improvements.
The players may also notice a completely renovated main locker room and a new family and entertainment flex space. Press and media workspaces were also updated with the latest technology and equipment.
Scottrade Center and the Blues didn’t forget the fans when it came to renovating the facility. Fans will notice some very exciting and significant upgrades.
An exciting new update includes an all-new premium 132-Seat Theater Box concept which includes a 44 Seat Bar/Lounge/Concierge. The suite level lobby and bathrooms have also been completely revamped.
Guests will also find renovated restrooms on the Plaza and Mezzanine levels, renovations of several concession areas including POS systems to improve speed of transactions, and 4 new heavy-duty wheelchair lifts.
