Dover

Location:

Port of Dover, Kent

Project Brief:

The installation and management of a winter ice rink, that was bigger than the previous year, was required in the historic Dover Marine Station, Cruise Terminal One at Dover Western Docks.

Solution:

A 400 sqm temporary ice rink was installed on the level floor and surrounded with wooden barriers. The barriers bought a rustic feel to the ice rink and with tasteful decoration around the terminal, helped to enhance the festive atmosphere.

The skate exchange was built using skate racks inside the building and housed over 250 pairs of ice skates. We also supplied several solid wooden benches for the skate exchange along with 20 skate aids and all other equipment needed to maintain the surface of the ice rink manually.

A fully encompassing rink management team was supplied to operate all aspects of the day-to-day operation of the rink. Dover also took advantage of one our extra technical packages which included a PA system. We are proud to have supplied our services to this unique venue for the third year running.
