Bielenberg Sports Center (BSC) is one of the largest multi-use sports centers in the state, serving the community and region with high-quality indoor and outdoor facilities, including a 90,000-square-foot indoor field house, two indoor ice arenas, an outdoor refrigerated recreational ice skating rink, 36 outdoor athletic fields and a splash pad water feature. It is home to three local high school hockey teams and Madison’s Place, the Twin Cities East Metro’s first completely handicapped accessible inclusive playground.
This project included the removal of an existing 55,000 square foot air dome field house and replacement with a new 90,000 square foot field house and a 20,000 square foot, two-story lobby and concessions area. The project also included two outdoor ice sheets, splash pad and playground, and a two-story lobby addition that links the outdoor ice sheets. Construction was performed to B3 standards, with sustainable elements including a geothermal heating system. The new structure utilizes stacked 10″ insulated precast panels spanning horizontally.
