Stormport were proud to be invited to the ground-breaking ceremony for the planned new Cambridge Ice Arena on the morning of November 28th2017. Steve James, Connections Director and Andrew Butcher, Contract Manager were in attendance.
The Cambridge Ice Arena will bring an international-standard, permanent ice rink to Cambridge by Autumn 2018. Site is located by Newmarket Road Park and Ride in Teversham. The arena will be open to the public and community sporting groups. Figure skating, ice hockey, ice dancing, speed skating and ice discos will all be offered at the rink.
The arena will be built on land leased from Marshall of Cambridge. Most of the funding has come through the University of Cambridge by generosity of the alumni of the Cambridge University Ice Hockey Club, particularly David Gattiker, captain of the team in the 1930s who left a large sum in his will for an ice arena for Cambridge. A loan was also provided by Cambridge County Council. A true community project.
Stormport will be responsible for installing the all-important power supply for this prestigious development. This will be achieved by installing high voltage cables and installing a 11,000 volt substation adjacent to the arena.
