Several years ago, Edge School expanded their property and looked to traditional construction for classrooms, two NHL-sized hockey rinks and a gymnasium. When the plans were developed, the project costs exceeded their available budget by $10 million. The architect and project manager approached Sprung for an alternative proposal. After careful consideration, three 120’-wide Sprung structures were provided and erected with a net savings of $7 million. The decision to use Sprung allowed the Edge School expansion to go forward on budget and on time. The ice arenas at the Edge School are a showcased aspect of this multi-venue development and have received high praise from visiting teams and spectators.
“Our Sprung arenas have far exceeded our expectations in terms of look, feel and performance. The positive comments we have received on how much space there is, how bright the facility is and how good they look has been overwhelming. And most importantly folks cannot stop talking about the quality of the ice. Certainly this is a combination of ice plant and facility design however a major question in building Sprung arenas was the outside temperature and ice quality – well the questions have been answered with vigor. In 30 degree celsius weather, the ice has been outstanding!”
“We absolutely hit a HOME RUN with Sprung Instant Structures. Sprung structures actually enhanced our performance opportunities, look absolutely incredible both inside and out side and were erected in a fraction of the time it would have taken had we made other choices.”
