PROPROJEKT was commissioned by the city of Freiburg im Breisgau to carry out a detailed demand analysis as the basis for an econiomic feasibility study for a new a new ice rink in Freiburg. For this purpose, the relevant user groups were identified and their demands and requirements transferred to a demand plan with recommendations for spectator capacity, number of ice rinks, standards and functions, serving as the basis for the development of a space program as well as schematic test plans.
In order to assess the profitability of the hall, both the costs (construction, maintenance, financing, operation) and the revenue potential (e.g. naming rights, sponsoring, ticketing, hospitality, catering) were determined and compared in scenarios. In addition, various implementation and operator models were compared and evaluated, differences between conventional and modular construction were highlighted, and possible expansion options were analysed and evaluated.
