Coca-Cola Centre

Completion: 2003
Size: ± 9,700 sq.m.
Location: Grande Prairie, Alberta

The Coca-Cola centre consists primarily of two NHL sized ice surfaces, 12 change rooms, two multi-use dressing rooms, two officials rooms, players and penalty boxes, meeting rooms, a pro shop, spectator seating, concession areas, zamboni room, mechanical and electrical rooms, office space and connecting spaces to the Community Knowledge Campus.

One ice surface is spectator-oriented with 1000 fixed seats and capacity on the opposite side for 600 additional seats. The second ice surface is more local community group-oriented with 350 fixed seats.

The Coca-Cola design concept has two levels that combine the overall contours of the site with the proposed design of the Community Knowledge Campus. The orientation of the Coca-Cola Centre has the southwest end of the building to be connected to the campus, and with the main entry oriented to the northeast at grade level.  The contours of the site in the area of the arenas allows the main ice level to be situated one floor below the main level of the campus. The arena has a second level that is used to access all spectators seating for both arenas as well as being the functional future connection point to the Community Knowledge Campus. The creation of a second level spectator zone allows for a major spectator event to happen on one sheet with public programming or a non-spectator event on the second sheet.
