Laying the ice for the Olympic-level rink involves a careful process of timing and temperature.
When finished the ice will be 20mm-25mm thick and have a temperature of about minus 6degC.
First a spray of water covered the concrete, then Mr Aiken went over the surface several times with a hose at a steady pace.
For the final layer he used a type of nozzle with very small holes to create tiny frozen pebbles of ice, like miniature ball bearings.
The $500,000 facility will have a soft opening in about two to three weeks before an official opening in the last week of May.
