Rockland, MA Integrated Builders celebrating its 30th year as the general contractor of choice by New England’s leading companies, is approaching the completion of this new 117,000 s/f ice arena for Lovell Academy that included extensive sitework and land clearing in the early stages of the project.
Located off Bill Delahunt Pkwy., this ground-up, three rink facility will host premier youth hockey programs. Offering three NHL regulation ice rinks with arena seating, while the center rink has 1,500 spectator seats at ice level, a goalie training area, fitness and strength training center and a physical therapy space.
The mezzanine level includes a professionally managed 7,000 square-foot upscale bar and restaurant with views of all 3 ice sheets. Additional entertainment includes 4-lane bowling alley, Full Swing Golf Pro Series simulators, a pro shop, an arcade/lounge, concessions, and a multipurpose space. In addition, all Lovell Academy teams will have permanent, custom locker rooms within the Lovell Arena.
The entry makes a bold gesture with full height glass pulled out from the rest of the building mass, while accents of fiber cement panels and perforated screening highlight gym and retail space on the ground floor. The presence of a gabled clerestory window engages daylight in the large restaurant space. When completed this facility will provide students and players with a new home for hockey.
The Integrated Builders team includes project manager John Concannon, project superintendent Herb Volpe, assistant project manager Kimberlee Sheehan, architect - Studio TROIKA, owners representative - Sears Point Development, civil engineer Grady Consulting, structural engineers Thornton Tomasetti & Goldstein Milano LLC, and MEP engineers Quieto Consulting Engineers.
