University of Notre Dame Compton Family Ice Arena Commissioning
Heapy Engineering provided LEED Program Management and Commissioning services for the new, 203,000, freestanding, on-campus ice arena designed to meet the needs of both the nationally ranked Irish hockey team and the local community.
The majority of the general public arena seating is of the chair-back variety. The facility includes two ice rinks (one of them Olympic-sized), with limited seating availability for the second sheet.
The facility also includes offices, locker room, and weight and cardio training facilities for the Notre Dame hockey program. Locker rooms are available for campus and community use of the facility.
When not in use by the University, this new facility is available to the community as a whole, and, in particular, to the many area youth hockey and figure skating programs that are in need of an additional venue.
The project was completed in fall 2012 and earned LEED Silver.
