- The brief: We’ll meet with you to ascertain your goals and aspirations and have a firm understanding of what it is that you’re looking to achieve
- Site survey: In order to design the best temporary ice rink for your venue, we need to understand its opportunities and its limitations. Our experienced team will undertake a full site survey. Ground type and levels, pedestrian and vehicle access and underground services are all taken into consideration
- Health & Safety: Ensuring the highest levels of safety during build, and during your rink’s opening period, is vital. Arena Ice puts diligent working practices at the heart of its approach and we are fully compliant with all health and safety regulations, including the Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations brought into play in April 2015
- Budget: Having ascertained your guideline budget at the start of the process, we will draft a detailed budget for approval, ensuring there is complete transparency
Site survey and budget complete, it’s time to get creative. Our in-house CAD team will create 3D visuals, bringing the concept to life. Our in-house structural engineers are involved at every stage of design development.
We’ll work closely with your team to ensure as little disruption to your venue’s day-to-day business as is possible. We shall provide a detailed build and dismantle schedule for all supply partners to enable the client to monitor progress.
