The Bell Centre, home to the Montréal Canadiens hockey team, was designed with maximum flexibility in mind. Trizart Alliance led all of the design installations, rigging, lighting, video and mobile curtain systems.
Equipped with technologically advanced, computer-controlled systems, this multifunctional structure – the most modern amphitheatre in North America today – can be reconfigured in record time. With 150 heavy duty moorings already in place, tennis, basketball, circus and other equipment for various events can be installed.
The windlass and columns used to reconfigure the facility are mounted on rolling transoms integrated in the roof’s 110-ft by 225-ft (31 m X 69 m) technical grid, a structure larger than the 85-ft (26 m X 61 m) regulation National Hockey League ice surface area below. The roof frame will support up to 150,000 lbs (68,000 kg) of lighting and other equipment, including a 360° LED screen.
Addition in the summer of 2015 of a new motorized hoist system, seating replacement and multimedia layout.
Trizart Alliance consultants has been involved in various renovation and upgrade projects at the Bell Centre over the years.
