The USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program recently moved from the Ice Cube in Ann Arbor, Michigan to their new arena in the neighboring town of Plymouth. Having worked with Paragon in the past, the folks at USA Hockey called upon us to help brand their new home, now known as USA Hockey Arena.
Formally the home of the Plymouth Whalers, USA Hockey Arena is approximately 170,000 square feet, and sits 3,504 with one main floor seating level, private suites and press boxes. The walls in the arena are primarily concrete block with little or no interior décor. Our challenge was to design dynamic and informative wall displays to highlight the history and achievements of USA Hockey through the years. To accomplish this, we designed, built, and installed multipurpose, modular wall systems to display historical achievements, Olympic, World Cup, and World Junior championships, and top alumni, many of whom have gone on to become NHL stars and Stanley Cup champions. Sections of the displays are permanent, while many elements can be easily updated and changed. We also designed, printed, and installed pole banners throughout the parking areas.
The wall displays were built using PVC plastics, aluminum panels, Plexiglass, and Sintra substrates. Most of the graphics were printed directly to the substrates with our UV flatbed printer and Latex ink roll to roll printers. These displays tell the story of USA Hockey in a dynamic and colorful way.
USA Hockey’s new interior decoration beautifully illustrates the organization’s historical legacy and the opportunities it provides young people of all ability levels to learn the game of hockey with cutting-edge training.
