In the 2007-2008 winter season, for the second time in history, a public ice rink was opened on Moscow’s Red Square. Once again, the project was organized by the GUM Shopping Center, the main historical building which stands directly opposite the Kremlin. The largest in Europe entertainment complex of this kind includes: an ice arena, a cafe, retail premises, a rental and service center, and technical premises were more than 3,000 square meters.
JSA Company again was the main technical contractor for the implementation of this unique project, which has become popular since last season. The company redesigned all the drawings for the structure of the complex, taking into account last year’s experience and in consultation with other technical contractors. JSA installed the original platform structure from Layher Allround Scaffolding elements. It was a special platform for leveling the level for installing cooling systems to create and maintain ice coverage during the operation of the entire GUM-Skating Rink on the Red Square complex. JSA also installed Prolyte trusses towers to support sound equipment and lighting fixtures to illuminate the ice rink at night. In addition, JSA helped the organizers to create the infrastructure facilities of the complex.
In addition, as the main contractor, JSA serviced special events that took place at the Skating Rink at certain points during its operation from December 2007 to March 2008. These included events such as the opening and closing of the Skating Rink, New Year and Christmas celebrations, figure skating demonstrations, international friendly hockey games, the filming of special TV programs, the presentation of the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, and many other significant events.
At the same time, JSA installed structures for two ice-skating – on Red Square in Moscow and on Palace Square in St. Petersburg.
