ACT Government invites Expression of Interest for new Canberra Ice Sports Facility

ACT Government invites Expression of Interest for new Canberra Ice Sports Facility
September 10, 2019

The ACT Government has opened an Expression of Interest process seeking parties to design, construct, own, operate and maintain a new ice sports facility in Canberra.

The Expression of Interest (EOI) follows the ACT Ice Sports Facility Options Analysis Report released by the government in late 2018, which explores three options for delivery of a new ice sports facility in the ACT.

The EOI requirements have been developed to facilitate the delivery of a new ice sports facility to meet the needs of the community (including local ice sporting groups) while also considering the ongoing commercial viability of the facility through a range of uses including competitions, events and recreational use.

Interested parties will need to provide an indicative proposal for a new facility including a high level concept design and address how they would provide a range of essential facility requirements including two individual ice rinks and appropriate seating, spectator and associated amenities for a competitive ice sport event venue to support the delivery of local, regional, national and appropriately sized international events.

The ACT Government will consider providing a financial contribution to support the establishment of a new ice sports facility but does not intend to own or be the primary funding source for the development and its ongoing operation.

Commenting on the planned facility, Tony Prescott, President of the ACT Ice Sports Federation, stated “we welcome (this) announcement.

“(It) is as a giant leap forward for the future of ice sports in the ACT, and we will continue to partner with the government and the private sector to realise the ice sports community’s vision of having a major ice sports centre in the nation’s capital.”

The ACT Ice Sports Facility Options Analysis Report, developed in consultation with the Ice Sports Federation, is available on the ACT Sport and Recreation website at: www.sport.act.gov.au/sport-facilities/strategic-projects.
