work for national cemetery done in Spa City
8 April 2005
Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C. is undergoing a $35 million expansion. And all the design work for it is being done in the Spa City.
The LA Group is now working on a design for the 25-acre expansion of the burial grounds. It will be two years before any construction can begin, but architects said they already have some ideas in mind.
Sporko said, "We'll try to keep a lot of the big trees. There's a lot of
big trees at Arlington. The topography, the terrain, the architectural
style in the turrets -- all those kinds of things will go into the thinking
of the design."

The design work for the Arlington National Cemetery expansion is being done in Saratoga Springs, New York.
The expansion will give the cemetery 17,000 more grave sites and 23,000 more spaces for burial urns.
