Griffin Structures is serving as program and construction manager and owner’s representative for the new 280,000 square-foot Great Park Ice & Five Point Arena sports complex. The $108 million community ice and sports facility, located on a 13.5 acre site at Orange County’s Great Park, will also serve as the new training facility for the Anaheim Ducks® National Hockey League team.
The facility will feature four indoor ice rinks—three NHL regulation rinks and one Olympic regulation rink. The main arena will seat 2,500 and have the ability to host a wide variety of sporting and entertainment events. Other features include a sports bar, party rooms, classrooms, and outdoor public spaces and amenities.
The pre-engineered metal framework will result in significant schedule and cost savings. The comprehensive LEED® Silver facility will fill the County-wide need for ice sports activities including youth and adult hockey programs, figure skating, regional and national tournaments and competitions, as well as open public recreational skating. When completed, the facility—the County’s first such venue in 20 years—will be one of the largest of its kind in the nation.
