2014 DCI Governor’s Award – Best Adaptive Reuse for Public Space
The City of Victor received a grant from Great Outdoors Colorado along with funding from the Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mine and the City to complete the construction of a new outdoor ice rink. The new rink includes natural wood dasher boards and a removable shade screen system. The rink is used for soccer in the summer so removable goals have also been built into the ends of the rink. Safety mesh has been added above the boards to protect the spectators at the new stone seating and activity area near the warming hut. The rink was designed with materials that fit into the rustic character of this resilient mining town. DHM managed the project and worked closely with Goff’s civil and structural to complete design of the ice rink amenities.
