Buckingham Group starts £30m London ice rink

Buckingham Group Contracting has just started demolition work to clear the way for a £30m ice skating centre in London’s Lee Valley.

The project designed by Faulkner Browns will replace the 34-year old Lee Valley Ice Centre with two Olympic size rinks.

The centre would be the first twin-pad venue in the south of England, and will also feature a new gym and exercise studio.

Lee Valley Regional Park Authority is promoting the scheme, which will be built in two phases to maintain an open ice rink at the site at all times during construction.

The consultant team includes structural and civil engineer Expedition and MEP engineer Max Fordham.

The proposed building will have an 80,000 sq ft footprint and rise 10.5m in height.
