New roof for The Trusts Arena

Work on The Trusts Arena roof will begin in late July and is expected to last for 12 months, but
shouldn’t cause any disruption to events or users of the Arena.

Routine maintenance work uncovered some issues with weather tightness and sparked a full-scale

revealed a number of issues with the roof which will be addressed with the renovation work.

around guttering and drainage.”

The project was put out to tender and Canam Construction will lead the $3.7 million project.

Foundation North and TTCF – for their support.”

The Trusts Arena building was designed by Warren and Mahoney and built by Canam Construction in
