Mount Prospect Ice Arena

The Mount Prospect Ice Arena is becoming a familiar place to Metalmaster Roofmaster since the completion of the newly renovated $10 million dollar Ice Arena in September of 2016.  We worked on this project with contractor Nicholas & Associates, Inc. to provide metal wall panels for the Arena. This state of the art facility includes two full size sheets of ice (200’ x 85’) with seating for 450 at each rink, ten locker rooms, a pro-shop and restaurant.

You can now find a Metalmaster Roofmaster banner hanging in the North Rink of the Arena, and we love how it looks! Check it out below and see it for yourself the next time you visit The Mount Prospect Ice Arena!

Nicholas & Associates, Inc. is a full-service contractor, providing comprehensive General Contracting, Construction Management, and Design/Build services. Take a look at their site to see some of the amazing work they have done.
