Kraus-Anderson Construction Company has completed the renovation of the White Bear Lake Sports Center, a 38,000-square-foot recreation facility at 1328 Highway 96 East in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
The $4.2 million, year-long construction project features exterior and interior improvements to the ice area, which had been converted from tennis courts in 1989. Designed by JLG Architects, the ice arena’s renovation includes a new metal panel roof, Low-E ceiling, dehumidification system and an ice refrigeration room, which contains new equipment that was designed to have capacity for a second sheet of ice in the future.
New LED lighting, exterior signage and translucent panels were installed to bring natural light into the building. In addition, grandstand bleachers and telescoping bleachers were added, all bathrooms were remodeled and rubber flooring was installed in the women’s locker room and aerobics room.
