Buffalo Canalside

A one-of-a-kind attraction, Buffalo Canalside adapts to nature’s seasons for spectacular year-round views and entertainment. The outdoor venue sits on 21 historic waterfront acres, featuring a recreated Erie Canal that acts as a 35,000-square-foot reflecting pond in the summer and ice rink offering curling, skating, pond hockey and ice bikes in the winter.

scope

On top of water treatment and circulation engineering, we completed the full engineering design for the ice making systems crucial to the success of this year-round hotspot. We teamed up with rink designer Custom Ice for equipment selection, the structural layout and glycol circulation system. Our drawings included full engineering construction documents for both the reflection pool and the ice rink.
