Ice Arena Floor and Dasher Boards Replacement

On November 14, 2022, the City Council awarded a contract to All-new iceAmerican Arena Products to replace the floor, dasher boards and glass in the south rink at the New Hope Ice Arena. The previous floor, boards and glass were installed in 1996 when the south rink was originally built.

The project started mid-March and was completed in early June. The base project included replacement of the 86'x201' concrete floor system including replacement of the piping, insulation, vapor barrier, and concrete. It also included replacement of the existing dasher boards and glass, including the player, penalty, and timekeeper boxes. The new board system is similar to the board system that currently exists, with 6-foot-tall glass around the entire rink.

Several alternates included removal of the existing dasher system and a trade-in value, the addition of a backer panel along the west side of the rink that is adjacent to the walkway, installation of a FlexPost shielding system, and a powder coat on the support faceplates.

The project also included the addition of 25 advertising panels that will be used as a protective covering for "drop in" advertising panels. Armstrong Cooper Youth Hockey Association and the City of New Hope have an ongoing partnership for dasher board advertisements.
