Fredericton, New Brunswick
Grant-Harvey Centre is a regional event based facility with two ice surfaces and seating for a total of 2200 people. Both ice surfaces accommodate full barrier free access and seating from the ground floor, with the 1500 seat NHL arena, and a 3 lane walking track. The Olympic sized second ice surface seats 700 people, and is home to the Fredericton Amateur Speed Skating Club.
This facility hosted the 2013 World Mixed Doubles and World Senior Curling Championships, and is home to the CIS St. Thomas University men’s and women’s varsity hockey teams. This arena project is part of complex that includes multi-purpose sports fields and an indoor tennis club.
A large on-site geo-thermal system works in concert with the refrigeration system to capture waste heat and redistribute it for reuse. These areas include heat for the seating areas, in floor heating for the dressing rooms, as well as providing heat for snow melting at the main entrances to the facility. Excess energy is sold to the neighbouring indoor tennis facility.
