Multi-Pad Arena for Year-Round Sports

The Dartmouth Multi-Pad Arena is the first building project that incorporated both CarbonCure ready mix and masonry products, courtesy of Quality Concrete and Shaw Brick and Stone, respectively.

The building includes a four pad ice arena: three NHL size rinks and one Olympic size rink. The facility was integrated with the existing All-Weather Sports Fields to provide a campus feel for the complex.

The amount of CO₂ emissions avoided in this building of the RBC Centre project is equivalent to the amount of CO₂ sequestered by 111 acres of forest in one year!


“The CarbonCure concrete that arrived at the Multi-Pad Arena had an excellent finish and met all of our fresh properties criteria.”
