The Viola Ice Arena Wales has won Sports Venue of the Year at The Welsh Hospitality Awards.
Home to the Cardiff Devils ice hockey team, the arena hosts international hockey and figure skating events, speed skating and curling.
The Ice Arena was joined in this category by fellow Scott Brownrigg-scheme, the Sophia Gardens Cricket Ground, designed by Neil MacOmish. We also completed the latest extensions on the Ground, and a comprehensive five year masterplan.
Neil holds an extensive background in sport stadia and civic architecture, having been involved with many of Scott Brownrigg’s high profile schemes over the years, including the Swalec Stadium Redevelopment, The Oval Cricket Ground, Celtic Manor Masterplan, the International Convention Centre in Newport and the Museum of Military Medicine.
Now in their fourth year, the Awards aim to showcase and celebrate the key professionals and businesses that enhance Wales’s reputation nationally and internationally.
Winners were announced at the awards night, yesterday Monday 11 November at the Exchange Hotel in Cardiff.
