Eisenhower Park's Twin Rinks Ice Center
For the Twin Rinks Ice Center in Eisenhower Park on Long Island, six insulated metal panel profiles (IMP) in varied colors were selected to suit the structure's operational, esthetic, and project schedule needs. Two hockey rinks large enough for a professional league are within the 165,000-square-foot building. The right temperature is maintained at the ice rinks thanks to IMPs.
The project includes 5,100 square feet of 4-inch Thermal-Space 42 IMPs in Pewter from Metl-3-inch Span, 10,500 square feet of 3-inch CF42 Striated IMPs in Brite Red from Metl-3-inch Span, and 7.2 Insul-Rib IMPs in Regal Blue from Metl-3-inch Span. 18.500 square feet of 6-inch Pewter ThermalSpace 42 IMPs, 4,200 square feet of Silver CF24 IMPs, and 1,600 square feet of Silver and Regal Blue CFR-42 Roof panels were also provided by Metl-Span.
The project's installer, Bruce Forster of Stuart Berger Construction Corp., claims that the owner desired sturdy exterior and interior materials. Because humidity eats away at ice, he continues, "it has to have something on the inside to keep it dry." There is a humidity control system, much as in earlier rinks, but the insulated panels are more effective.
One- and two-hour rated firewall components were needed for the project. It was simple to combine many Metl-Span systems, according to Robert Andrus, president of Andrus Architecture. We had a nice selection of colors, and the construction time worked with our timetable, he adds.
Inside Eisenhower Park's Twin Rinks Ice Center are stadium seats, figure skating locker rooms, a pro shop, private party rooms, and a personal fitness and sports physical therapy training center.
On September 20, Jason Brown, the 2014 Olympic bronze medalist, will perform in Ice Dreams, an Olympic ice show, at Eisenhower Park's Twin Rinks Ice Center in East Meadow, New York.
Owner of Twin Rinks Ron Friedman expressed his pleasure at hosting the figure skating competition, which will include some of the top skaters in the world. We encourage everyone to visit our cutting-edge facilities at Eisenhower Park in Nassau County on September 20, 2014, to see these athletes up close during what will undoubtedly be a spectacular evening.
The 2014 Olympic and World alternate Samantha Cesario, 2014 Olympic Silver Medalist Dylan Moscovitch, 2014 International Competitor Liubov Ilyushechkina, US National Silver Medalists Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim, Two-Time Canadian National Medalists Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier, The Skyliners, and National Champions John Coughlin and Caydee Denney will all perform in Ice Dreams. On the same rink as their Olympic idols, more than 100 young skaters from Nassau County and the surrounding region will perform.
The opportunity to compete in Ice Dreams against Olympians and National Champions is really exciting to me. "I hope that this show will encourage a new generation of skaters to pursue their ambitions," said Olympic bronze medalist Brown.
Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano remarked, "We are happy to present this fun-filled ice performance at the new Twin Rinks in Eisenhower Park." The organizer described Ice Dreams as a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Olympic, World, and National skaters to interact with young skaters from our neighborhood. For our young skaters and our community, "this beautiful event promises to be entertaining, motivating, and unforgettable."
