Pelham Civic Complex | Pelham, Alabama | Dual NHL Ice, 3,500 Seating and Banquet Facility

Pelham Civic Complex | Dual NHL Sheet – 3,500 seating – Banquet Hall

The City of Pelham wanted to build a facility, which would be an asset to the community and serve the entire Birmingham area. After an initial discussion about bringing a professional Hockey team to Pelham, it was decided to build a Competition Arena and Banquet Facility for the City of Pelham in Shelby County.

After researching other Ice Skating Facilities throughout the Country they came back to Huntsville, Alabama home of the Number One Ice Facility in the Country. Eric Milberger was chosen as the architect not only because of his success with Huntsville’s Ice Skating Facility but because of his complete knowledge of how a Skating facility would function and knowing it’s needs “inside-out”.

The $6,800,000 project was designed and put out for bids in six months and completed construction within one year. The Pelham Iceplex will be opened the winter of 1996.

The Pelham Ice Complex includes Two NHL Ice Rinks | 5000 seats for exhibit | Tournaments for both Dry and ice sports | 8 Locker Rooms |Party Room | Concessions | a Pro Shop | Parks and Rec Offices | and a 500 Seat Banquet Facility.
