Ice Slab in Place, Work Continuing at Kinplex Arena
Medicine Hat – The ice surface floor slab inside the Kinplex Arena has been poured and crews continue to work on upgrading the facility.
The slab, arena boards and ceiling of the Kinplex were determined to have exceeded life expectancy. Work on the interior of the facility began in June.
The replacement of this important infrastructure has proven to show some difficulty and in spite of everyone’s best efforts to anticipate problems, an unexpected delay has developed. The City of Medicine Hat, the consultant and the contractor are working together to implement a solution.
The City is working closely with the community and user groups during this time. Events scheduled to be held in the Kinplex will be accommodated at other facilities in the community.
Once completed, the Kinplex Arena will feature new boards and player benches, a better viewing area for spectators and will be accessible to better accommodate anyone with mobility aids.
The City of Medicine Hat thanks the public for their patience and understanding while we undertake this important community improvement project.
