Little Ceasars Arena
Completed Summer 2017
Thanks to The District Detroit for capturing our team hard at work, excavating dirt to make way for ice-making infrastructure where the Detroit Red Wings will play beginning this fall.
RBV Contracting’s involvement with the state-of-the-art sports and entertainment center, Little Caesar’s Arena, was broken down into two phases. The first phase RBV Contracting executed was valued at $400,000 and completed by February 2017 for CIMCO Refrigeration. In the first phase, RBV performed excavation and subbase installation services at the Arena, as well as final grading to National Hockey League (NHL) specifications, prior to concrete placement for the Arena’s ice surfaces. RBV also completed all excavation and backfill services for Little Caesar’s Arena’s underground mechanical systems for both practice and main rinks.
The second phase RBV Contracting executed at Little Caesar’s Arena was valued at $1.2 million and completed by September 2017 for Barton Malow. RBV served as a prime contractor for the Arena’s outdoor landscaping, which includes installing large diameter trees, planting beds, and irrigation system installation. RBV Contracting made its mark on the the interior and exterior of the revolutionary multi-purpose arena.
This project allowed us to help provide a source of entertainment and revenue that can be enjoyed by the entire televised world. Every time we watch the Detroit Red Wings play hockey, we get a little swell of pride!
