This state-of-the-art Washington Redskins training facility in Richmond, Virginia, included architectural design for a main building (exhibit space, offices, locker rooms, and high-tech training room), drill field, two side-by-side professional-grade playing fields, and spectators’ area.
3north quickly became a key player as the Mayor’s committee determined the best site for the Training Camp. A number of sites and scenarios were studied based upon size, access, zoning, ownership as well as program needs defined by the Redskins and other NFL training camps. Once the site was determined, approval from City Council was sought. This highly visible project with the Economic Development Authority of the City as a client, Bon Secours and the Redskins as tenants, the Science Museum of Virginia as a neighbor and the residents of Richmond and beyond as the benefactors, has required a high degree of management and coordination on 3north’s part. In addition, a tight schedule necessary to get the Training Center open in time for the Training Camp in the summer of 2013, makes strong communication and tight documentation essential for this project.
