Centre National De Hockey Sur Glace, Cergy, France
The French Ice Hockey Federation (FFHG), in conjunction with Cergy-Pontoise, decided to invest in a national facility. ArenaProjekt was contacted to assist with a feasibility study and investigation into what would be required for a fully-functional arena and what it would cost.
Result: FFHG stated the assignment as a school example of how to develop a well-designed arena and uses it as a reference when informing clubs on how to think in their projects. The result was delivered on a more detailed level than they had ever seen and the cost estimate corresponded very closely to what later have been submitted in the tenders.
