Ice Rink Niesky

Umbau und Überdachung

4440 m2

The attractive new venue creates a prestigious feature for the city of Niesky, continuing its long ice hockey tradition. It is integrated into the existing landscape and recreational swimming complex.
The main feature of the project is the approx. 3600 m² roof that appears to be floating freely while spanning 41 m span, covering all program components, and giving protection from precipitation, winds and stormy weather. The structural system consists of filigree three-hinged arches in combination with thin tension cables eliminating thrust at the supports. The roof is stiffened by the corrugated metal decking and by a horizontal beam around the perimeter. Two rows of large skylights provide natural light and additional natural ventilation.
The local ice hockey club ELV Tornados Niesky has a new home ground in this modern, spacious ice stadium with its dome-like roof.
