14,307-m² (154,000-ft²) arena and events center, the first sports facility in North America to earn LEED Gold. The highly flexible arena features seating for up to 7,300 people and can accommodate hockey, football, basketball, shows, conferences, rodeos, motocross, and concerts. Civil design for the 6.9-hectare (17-acre) site, located entirely within a 100-year flood plain, include wetland enhancement, an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the site, and an innovative approach to storm water, resulting in significant construction cost savings.
