Construction work on Lee Valley Ice Centre due to start this summer
10 May 2021
The Lee Valley Regional Park Authority Board has given its final approval for construction work to start on the transformation of Lee Valley Ice Centre into a new world class venue.
After 34 years of use, the existing Lee Valley Ice Centre is nearing the end of its operational life and will have to close, making room for a new, contemporary replacement.
Working for Wrenbridge Sport, and alongside FaulknerBrowns and Expedition Engineering, we are providing MEP and Acoustic Services for the project, which will offer a huge improvement to the current centre, with innovative use of construction, energy and potable water reduction strategies.
The new £30m ice facility will be the only venue of its kind in the south-east of England, and one of only three Olympic-sized twin rinks in the UK. Built on the site of the current venue in Lea Bridge Road, Leyton, the new scheme will contain two Olympic sized ice pads for elite and community use and for all types of ice-related sports. The centre will have capacity for 800 spectators, a gym and an exercise studio, as well as a cafe and a community space providing a setting off point for walkers, runners and cyclists to the local area.
