Nunn Construction Breaks Ground on Colorado College Ed Robson Ice Arena
Nunn Construction has broken ground on a new ground-up, state-of-the-art, multi-purpose sustainable ice arena for Colorado College which will be the new home of Tigers Hockey benefiting Colorado College and the City of Colorado Springs. The opening of the Ed Robson Arena will bring CC Tiger Hockey onto campus for the first time in its history. Over 400 supportive fans and community members attended the recent groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the accomplishment of bringing this project to fruition and the generosity of donors and former alumni including Ed Robson, Class of 1954, who the arena will be named after.
Nunn Construction, an expert in high-impact community projects, is dedicated to creating a sense of place that allows CC hockey and athletics to compete at the national level, but also serves the needs of the broader Colorado College and Colorado Springs communities.
“Growing up in Colorado Springs as a fan of Tiger Hockey, this project has personal significance. I’m thrilled to bring the fan experience onto campus, as a part of our revitalized downtown. At Nunn, we are proud to bring an agile and responsive team of experts with passion and dedication to a successful Robson Arena project.” said Tyson Nunn, president of Nunn Construction.
JLG Architects designed the arena with local planning firm N.E.S., Inc. The arena is expected to open in 2021.
