Mold-Masters SportsPlexGeorgetown, ON 2016
The Town of Halton Hills commissioned the Mold-Masters SportsPlex expansion to promote wellness, accessibility and sustainability for active living. Located within the Greater Toronto Area, Halton Hills was faced with aging recreation facility infrastructure and increased demand for community recreational programming.
The project is a twin ice pad addition to an existing arena. The expansion includes two NHL-sized ice surfaces, each with 250-seat spectator viewing, 12 team rooms, four referee changing rooms and community multipurpose rooms.
It was critical that the building provide a high-level spectator experience. This meant great sight lines, raked fixed seats and in-floor radiant heat for spectator comfort. For informal family viewing, the central public corridor doubles as a communal gathering space, with five different warm viewing areas. The community rooms are continuously glazed, with views to both pads. Translucent insulated glazing punctuates the exterior elevations, which are oriented to provide ample natural light for both pads.
