Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Multipurpose Place Bell opens in Laval, Quebec

New 10,000-seat hockey arena also features Olympic and NHL facilities, and can host performance events

 

Place Bell, a new multipurpose sports stadium in Laval, Quebec, in Canada, has opened its doors. The 10,000-seat arena is the new home of AHL side Laval Rocket, and features an NHL-compliant ice rink that can be transformed into an amphitheater for performance events. The new venue also features a 2,500-seat Olympic speed and figure-skating arena, and a 500-seat skating rink.

Place Bell was designed by architects Lemay and CannonDesign as part of a design-build project by Quebec construction company Pomerleau. During the design of the venue, BIM and VDC techniques were applied.

Transition from a 10,000-seat hockey arena to a concert and performance venue can be performed quickly, and Place Bell’s flexibility will also see it host theatrical events. The smaller arenas will be accessible to the public as part of the venue’s community-focused long-term plans. The Olympic- and NHL-standard infrastructure inside the venue is also available for rent. Retail space and the Laval Sports Hall of Fame are also included in the design.
