Built in 1998, the Washington Post Press Facility is a 324,000 square-foot newspaper publishing plant. The structure features a 50,000 square-foot newsprint storage area for vertical stacking of newsprint rolls up to six rolls high, a pressroom housing four Mitsubishi printing presses, a 70,000 square-foot mailroom with 28 distribution docks, and a second floor press operating deck.

The Washington Post Press Facility also houses a cafeteria, locker rooms, production administration offices, and parking for 275 cars. In addition, there is an on-site fueling station and a fire pump house. 

Construction of the new plant was completed in phases so that the areas housing the new presses were available for installation before the rest of the project was completed. The press installation required a clean, controlled environment, and Clark minimized dust and dirt to allow for a smooth installation process.
