Our design team has designed a steel structure for an ice skating rink located in Sweden, close to Gothenburg.
The structure was impressive because of its dimensions of 112 x 80 x 24 m, the weight of 814 tons, and huge tie rods. The tension bars were among one of the largest assembled by Give Steel – they reached 85 mm in diameter, and one 6-meter-long bar weighed over 250 kg.
Each of the 19 arches has a radius of 81 meters. An arch is made of 12 elements that had to be designed to be repeatable to optimize production and assembly.
According to the assumptions given, the structure should have been mounted on site and temporarily used as an open ice rink. Our structural design department had taken this stage into account with additional wind loads for the structures as it would be covered with a facade a few months later.
