around the rink. An excess heat would be used for heating of the adjacent building. At Sun Peaks, due to aquifer limitations vertical drilling can not be used. Horizontal loops must be considered instead.
This project is perfect case to take advantage of System Architecture principles to design, implement and operate the facility. The project implements a number of innovative technologies and approaches to construction. Modular design. Phased implementation. Flexible operation.
- Non-corroding aluminum structure and special fabric / sprung stressed membrane panels engineered to meet and exceed building codes.
- Low-emissivity roof, allowing to significantly reduce energy demand and improve quality of ice
- Strategically located translucent skylight provides natural sunlight with protection from harmful rays
- Night time low energy and high efficiency overhead lighting
- Energy efficient ice plant with thermal storage buffer and high-density foam insulation.
- Optimized ice rink pipe layout
- Heat transfer from ice to surrounding area, also allowing sharing excess heat with an adjacent facility
- Utilizing non-toxic refrigerant with no ammonia usage.
- Energy efficient split space heating and de-humidification system.
- Efficient thermal and sound envelope insulation.
