A large surface area was designed using a technique that optimised project costs and enabled work to be completed very quickly.
The ice-rink comprises a continuous 20cm thick concrete slab reinforced with metal fibre and insulated on the bottom. The cooling fluid runs through piping laid on this concrete slab.
The DUOL air-supported roof comprises double-membrane inflated pneumatic panels, providing excellent heat insulation.
This architectural solution provides a perfect blend of functionality and spatial relationships with high efficiency, due to the construction systems used, and thus maximises performance while minimising cost.
The design enables the key elements of the project – the ice and the roof – to take centre stage, resolving the inner space in a sober, elegant fashion.
