Renovating Rockford IceHog’s Locker Rooms


Rooting for our hometown Rockford IceHogs has kept us returning to the 40-year-old BMO Harris Bank Center, located in downtown Rockford, for decades. So, when we had the opportunity to partner with McHugh Construction to complete the IceHogs’ new locker room facilities, we knew this project was perfect for our team.

Joint venture helps the hometown team 

The $650,000 renovation was a joint venture with McHugh and part of a larger investment project in the BMO Center, now home to the Chicago Blackhawks’ primary affiliate.

  • The remodeled locker rooms, spanning nearly 6,000 square feet, feature upgraded finishes, new flooring, and light fixtures.
  • The space’s new layout includes a reconfigured cardio workout area, lounge, and offices. 
  • Additionally, new mechanicals include a modern HVAC system that utilizes U.V. filtration for improved air quality and ventilation.
