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?

Ice rink of Notre Dame

Rossetti has designed a state-of-the-art ice skating facility with a gothic twist

 

The University Of Notre Dame’s gothic architectural vernacular is woven throughout the design of this state-of-the art 213,000 square foot ice arena. It is proudly positioned as the marquee entry for the school’s athletic campus. The large expanse of glazing reveals the action and excitement within to visitors approaching the campus from the east.

The fan experience begins outside the facility with a soaring, gothic façade and continues to build as fans enter into the north tower’s grand, multi-level space. It is designed to hold large crowds, encouraging gathering and circulating.

The facility features two sheets of ice to service the needs of the University and the region. The 5,022-seat Olympic-sized arena is home to the Fighting Irish hockey team, which has attracted capacity crowds at most of the games since the facility’s home opener in October 2011. Equally important is a smaller ice sheet designed to support community recreation and youth hockey. Together, the arena services the Irish Youth Hockey League, public skating sessions as well as drop-in hockey, figure skating, women’s club hockey, interhall hockey, physical education classes, etc. The University’s programming department handles approximately 84 teams with 166 games each week.

The space between each sheet of ice is celebrated by a wide concourse that allows views between the upper and lower mezzanines. Fans also enjoy a variety of seating options including suites, club, and regular seating. O’Brien’s, the premium club, is a cross between a traditional Irish pub and an urban loft. Exposed brick and high ceilings in the club provide an edgy yet comfortable environment for fans to enjoy the game.

“There’s not a bad seat in the house. The seats don’t fall back as they rise, so fans stay close to the action. You really feel like you’re a part of the game. It’s intimate and people have really embraced it,” said Mike McNeill, manager of programming for the University Of Notre Dame. “On the first night, people actually ran to get to their seats.”

The team areas provide a home for the University’s hockey team to study, dine, plan, and recoup. The Fighting Irish locker room is the pinnacle of collegiate hockey combining refined materials with state-of-the-art coaching technology systems. Eight auxiliary locker rooms are available for campus and community use.

Rossetti will be exhibiting at Stadia Design & Technology Expo 2012, 8-10 May 2012. Visit the company at Booth 2046
