Ice Rink of Grenoble
Architects: Herault and Arnod
Design office: BET Nicolas
The Olympic ice rink of Grenoble, built up for the 1968 Olympic games had to be either turned in compliance
with new aesthetics and security demands or rebuilt in order to welcome the World Championship of Ice Hockey.
A couple of young and inventive architects, Isabelle Herault et
Yves Arnod who are space creators, were in charge to realize the
chosen solution : the rebuilding. On the technical side the contracting
authority called up the Design office, Nicolas.
Ecological and economical strong criterions had to be seriously considered. Therefore, the technical choices
led to a chilled water production at –12°C thanks to ammonia cooling units.
Chilled water production to the EcoPMPAT
Cold capacity = 150.78 kW (PMPAT 73)
Cold capacity = 82.21 lW (PMPAT 40)
