Continuing its relationship with the Washington Capitals NHL hockey team, cleverSPIN worked with the architecture team to develop the programming and design direction for the Washington Capitals new practice facility and headquarters.

The site selected by the Capitals is located on the top of a 7-story parking garage attached to Ballston mall in Arlington, Virginia. The facility will house two ice rinks, one with seating for up to 1200. The facility will be used for youth hockey teams and a public rink for Arlington County. The Capitals will have a 20,000 SF state-of-the-art practice facility with weight and fitness rooms, as well as a new headquarters when the facility is completed in the fall of 2006.

The project includes the addition of a 1 1/2 level addition to the top of the existing parking garage. Reinforcement was added to hold the weight of two sheets of ice and the 1 1/2-story practice/headquarters facility. Also incorporated into the design was an interactive community park on the ground level of the building with access to the shopping mall adjacent to the building.

CleverSPIN was a part of the project from its inception in 2000 and continued to work with the project team through the design development phase.
