East Haven Ice Rink Renovation: Design Build Solutions

SLAM began working with the Town of East Haven in the winter of 2021 to evaluate, design and build the best value solution for the resurrection of the Patsy DiLungo Veteran’s Memorial ice rink located at 71 Hudson Street in a residential section of East Haven. The Town Ice Rink has been host to East Haven High School, East Haven Youth Hockey, Guilford High School, Shoreline Figure Skaters, ice skating lessons, ice hockey leagues, camps, birthday parties and events for decades. The facility has been closed since a leak was detected in the ice floor piping in 2019.
