Project to replace the curling and leisure surfaces:
On March 28, the contractor, Prologic, began work to replace the curling and leisure surfaces in the BSRC. Adjacent areas remained fully operational throughout the surface replacement construction. Work was in time for a smooth opening of the 2022 Curling Season!
The Curling and Leisure Slab Replacement includes the following upgrades and enhancements:
- New ice surface with longer sheets
- New design including reinstallation and modification of arena dasher boards
- New leisure ice outside of the field of play, including the stairs on the curling side and the arena player’s bench
- Barrier-free access to the ice surface
- Bright paint and enhanced lighting of the ice surface
The old curling and leisure surface had exceeded its life expectancy and was demolished in October 2021. The total cost of this project was $2.3 million.
