Arena Renovation and Rink Slab Replacement
The Donevan Recreation Centre Arena facility required extensive renovations and upgrades to accommodate its aging features and ice surface. The existing rink slab was demolished and is replaced with a new super-flat refrigerated slab and underfloor heating system. A new dasher board system is installed to accompany the new rink surface. Upgrades to mechanical, electrical, fire control and drainage systems were completed. The weather-damaged architectural block exterior was thoroughly repaired and the interior surfaces received epoxy paint finishes. The penalty box, players benches and officials area were reconfigured. The roof surface was replaced and a new low-E ceiling was added. Overall, the upgrades brought about significant change in both the appearance and functionality of this old arena.
