The Yellowknife Twin Arena project consists of two ice areas and two gymnasiums totaling over 102,504 square feet of space. The building sits on rock-socketed steel piles, while with the arena floor is an independent raft slab. The building houses a mixture of gymnasiums, gymnastics areas, food preparation space, an ice skating structure, and full shower rooms for each activity. The facility is configured to accommodate community events and meetings, and act as a primary location for conference events.
As Construction Manager, PCL was charged to build this facility on a tight budget and schedule, complete with capacity for the future construction of an adjacent ice surface. The final project was opened and embraced by the local community.
