Rebrand of Soloviev Basketball Practice Facility

University of Rhode Island


The University of Rhode Island, an esteemed member of the Atlantic 10 conference, aimed to enhance their competitive standing within the conference. With a significant investment of $8 million from the university and generous donors, they transformed their basketball practice facility into a modern and appealing space, elevating its overall image.

Pinpoint collaborated with architect partner Populous and general contractor Tower Construction to bring the creative vision to reality. Our team skillfully crafted and installed a wide range of graphics and branding elements including visually striking back-lit channel letters, dimensional lettering, elegant frosted logos on glass, eye-catching wall-mounted banners, sleek edge-lit display case elements, corridor graphics, concessions signage, custom-painted court side logos and graphics, and more.

The state-of-the-art Soloviev Basketball Practice Facility offers twenty-four-hour access to training and cutting-edge technology for both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. It is a premier venue to attract talented student-athletes looking to play basketball at the highest collegiate level. Additionally, the facility branding provides a visually captivating environment that elevates the overall experience for college athletes. The practice facility is located in the Mackal Fieldhouse on the Kingston, Rhode Island campus.
