Project details

The refurbishment of Slough Ice Arena, a two storey steel framed and metal clad building, which was built in 1986. The building has undergone extensive mechanical and electrical upgrades and major plant renewal alongside an internal refurbishment to its main facilities and fixtures and fittings to bring it in line with modern day arenas.

Our engineers worked with GT3 architects who were in turn appointed by Morgan Sindall to deliver the project. We provided a full RIBA Stage 0-7 service including the delivery on an MEP BIM model. This included undertaking the initial feasibility works for the project which identified the extent of the mechanical and electrical systems which needed replacing, along with the clients briefing requirements in terms of the refurbished and extended facilities. We then undertook the MEP services design at a BIM level 2 environment and worked closely with an ice pad specialist to replace the existing ice pad.

The site sits off Montem Lane and adjacent to the existing Montem Leisure Centre. The ice arena serves a wide catchment area and is a popular facility for young people. It is home to the Slough Jets ice hockey team, the Robin Cousin’s ice skating academy, and SPICE (a highly successful ice skating club for individuals with a disability). It attracts over 140,000 users per year.
