The construction of Rogers Place arena was dramatic all-round, from the oil drop shape on plan to the striking finishes used. Flynn was brought into the design process early on, on a design-assist basis to help bring the breathtaking renderings to life.
A full-time site team was employed to satisfy the extremely demanding needs of this project. Flynn’s Project Manager worked closely with Flynn Manufacturing to ensure fabrication and delivery of the seven separate curtain wall screens in a timely manner to meet the required schedule.
The building’s intricate design of numerous curved facets on differing planes required a custom system of aluminum ladder frames which were designed to meet the complex geometry. Up to 14 feet wide and 48 feet long, the logistics of delivering the frames to the busy downtown were masterfully coordinated. Once installed, the frames were clad in stainless steel skin panels with an angel hair finish. In total, about 25,000 skin panels were installed.
