For this mandate, we also replaced the cooling loops under the ice rink slab and installed a glycol “snow melter”. We added a domestic hot water preheating system including a recirculated hot water loop for the locker rooms.


The mechanical room was small, which made it difficult to install mechanical equipment and piping. Lowering the new cooler into the downstairs mechanical room presented an additional challenge since there was only one opening.
