It’s Hockey Season! At ATS we’re loving that our Carolina Hurricanes are part of the NHL Playoffs again this year.
If you’ve been to hockey game, I’m sure you’ve noticed the engineered-steel structure that creates that open space. Last month, I met a woman whose company specializes in those spaces. Linda Robert introduced me to Lainco, a full-service steel fabricator that offers engineering and structural-erection management all under one roof.
Linda explained that Lainco specializes in projects that require large unobstructed spaces – like hockey, soccer, swimming, and other sporting arenas. This also includes commercial, industrial, and institutional projects like warehouses and data centers.
Linda shared one of those arena projects – The Skating Club of Boston. Designed by Studio Troika, this 180,000-sf project includes three skating rinks: a 2,500-seat Olympic-sized main rink and two standard-sized rinks for figure skating and local hockey games. The building also includes a physical therapy suite, a radiology room, dance space, and off-ice training space.
