Hockey arena architecture
It’s time to rethink the rink
Your goal is our passion
When it’s time to rethink your rink, JLG’s hockey-focused designers are ready to get in the game. Teaming up with the nation’s premier architecture studio specializing in ice sports, you’ll have access to the country’s only Certified Ice Technician + Certified Ice Rink Manager, as well as our multi-purpose event center and operational team. Together, we direct 100% of our energy into driving an unrivaled recruitment and fan experience on and off the ice. JLG is committed to collaborative design that balances athletics, entertainment, budget, operation, and revenue – winning the hearts of communities, fans, students, and athletes.
Authentic hockey venues need authentic hockey people designing them. At JLG, we’ve had our skates laced up since 1989, igniting the ice with spectacular sightlines and wide-open concourses that helps fans catch every dangle, snipe, and celly. JLG huddles with leagues, coaches, players, trainers, and fans to create the ultimate experience that reinforces your culture. Under the ice, we gameplan for operational sustainability, using creative innovations in recycled water systems and resurfacing to keep players safe, costs low, and fans warm.
To entice the best athletes, you need more than the best ice. JLG creates extraordinary experiences built for extraordinary teams. JLG immerses athletes and coaches in state-of-the-art locker rooms, training rooms, weight rooms, nap rooms, media rooms, nutritional stations, and branded lounges built for the best.
