Arlington Ice Rink, Arlington, VA

Exterior of Addition onto Existing Parking Structure
Exterior of Addition onto Existing Parking Structure

Working with Arlington County and the Washington Capitals, a two story addition was built above the already existing seven story parking garage serving the Ballston Commons Shopping Mall.  The existing garage columns and footings were bolstered to accommodate the additional load of the new structure, which is a combination of cast-in-place concrete and structural steel.  The facade features a sloped curtainwall projecting over the sidewalk.  

Featuring two NHL regulation size ice skating rinks, the facility serves the area's professional hockey team, the Washington Capitals, and Arlington County.
