Ice House is on track

31 Jul 2009

Ice House is on track Image

Construction of the Ice House at Waterfront City is well underway and is currently on track to open in time for the 2010 Winter Olympics. 

It will be the first of its kind in Australia and will add to Melbourne’s reputation as the nation’s sporting capital.

In addition to being the future home of the Olympic Winter Institute, it is certain to become a Mecca for a new generation of Australians wanting to learn the art of ice skating.

With work on the external structure close to complete, focus now turns to the building’s interior and development of the ice rinks themselves.

Featuring two Olympic-sized rinks with spectator seating, Ice House will be equipped to host a range of elite ice sports events including national and international ice hockey, ice skating, figure skating and speed skating.

Progress is as follows:

  • External structure almost complete;
  • Ice rink concrete slabs poured;
  • Work on stadium seating currently underway with pouring of concrete steps in progress; and
  • Ice making plant has recently arrived and due to be installed soon.
