This project consisted of the demolition to an existing portion of the arena (originally built in 1961) to allow for a new 22,000 square foot addition that included new lobby areas, offices, a vendor and banquet area, change rooms and second storey office space. An extensive upgrade was provided to the existing banquet hall, as well as renovations and alterations to the existing arena area.

“The Aquicon team’s knowledge, experience and integrity were evident throughout the project, and they were able to successfully meet our expectations.”
