Municipality of Jičín

Construction period

08/2010 – 11/2011

Type of construction


Scope of services


Multifunctional arena for sports and cultural events, especially for amateur sports teams and general public.

The reconstruction of the existing arena consisted in covering the ice rink with a new roof, executing a new chilled concrete slab including distribution systems and modifications to the refrigeration system plant, demolishing the existing and constructing a new building housing locker rooms and a restaurant. Also, the arena now includes a new precast concrete stand with built-in locker rooms and a capacity of 500 seats and 136 standing places. A new car park with 50 parking spaces has been built in front of the ice-hockey arena.

The roofing system consists of a timber roof (floor plan dimensions of 73 m by 43 m) resembling the shape of an upturned boat. The load-bearing elements are made of curved glue laminated timber trusses mounted on large-diameter piles with reinforced concrete footings. The roofing system is a ventilated double-skin structure with titanium-zinc covering. New boards have been installed around the ice rink and a new polished reinforced concrete slab has been poured.

The locker rooms are housed in a new two-storey building with a foundation system consisting of large-diameter piles, strip foundation and a reinforced concrete slab. The load-bearing structure of the building is made of brick blocks, a reinforced concrete skeletal frame and slab panels. The roofing is a flat single-skin not-ventilated system with flexible PVC covering. The façade is composed of a thermal insulation contact system with silicone plaster combined with wooden cladding and fitted with circular plastic windows evoking the sea. The building housing locker rooms includes a boiler room, players’ locker rooms with sanitary facilities, a cash desk and a restaurant with a private kitchen, a glazed skybox and a terrace with a wooden footbridge to the pond dam.
