John Burley, who has 25 years of experience designing and building ice rinks, plays the Bob Vila of ice rink construction, walking the viewer through all of the unique design parameters critical to a successful ice rink installation. This 8 part educational documentary of ice rink design and construction takes the prospective designer/builder through all of the phases of construction from ground breaking through staff orientation. These are ideal for the architect, engineer, or private developer whom may not be very experienced with the esoteric construction principals unique for the unusual environment of an ice skating rink. Each section of the video is approximately 30 minutes in length and outline the special design elements of moisture control, Low-E ceiling design, dehumidification, rubber flooring installation, and proper application of materials to ensure long term performance with minimal maintenance. The major categories contained within each chapter are located below next to the video links. However, each section also contains smaller, but equally valuable design tips and cost saving ideas not listed.
These videos make an emphasis to show many of the commonly overlooked details and mistakes witnessed over the years from being in numerous facilities. The standard construction techniques often used for conventional construction often proves problematic when not altered for the cold and abusive environment of an ice rink - these videos show how to avoid such problems and wasted construction expenses.
