Armstrong Arena

The Armstrong Arena houses an NHL-sized ice rink with 400-person seating capacity. Its curved roof features custom 100-foot-long composite trusses constructed with glulam top chords, steel V-struts and slightly splayed double tension tie cables. The lumber for this project was donated by a local mill.

The Structurlam team has been an instrumental part of the design and construction team bringing this project to fruition. Their team has gone beyond my expectations.
