Our company grew up in North Dakota and northern Minnesota; ice hockey is in our blood. We have worked on over 100 ice hockey projects and have 10 venues currently in design and construction. With a dedicated studio group that works on nothing but ice hockey every single day, we are one of the nation’s ice hockey experts. Listed as the #23 Sports Architecture Firm in America, according to Building Design+Construction, we live and breathe for projects just like yours. We have designed community, collegiate, and professional arenas that bring a level of creativity and a design spark that will provide the team with an unparalleled place to call home. As one the country’s Top 50 Best Places to Work (Inc. Magazine) and Top 50 Most Admired Companies (MSN Money), JLG is driven by the belief that what we do is more than just a job; it’s about making life better for our clients and communities.
Hockey is an important part of American culture. The players, arenas, and teams are woven into our national tapestry, established as a social institution. The sights and sounds of any sporting experience are like none other, and JLG Architects understands the excitement, exhilaration, and celebration of a hockey fan. JLG understands something else as well: what it takes to construct a premier athletic facility that will take the sporting experience to new heights for everyone who utilizes it. This knowledge and expertise has led the firm to create a division named JLGice that is dedicated to multi-purpose event centers which include hockey ice sheets. JLGice is currently working on 10 multi-purpose venues around the country, and is the architect-of-choice for the North American Hockey League, the United States Hockey League, and the NCAA National Collegiate Hockey Conference.
