THE CAVES ATHLETIC AND WELLNESS CENTER AT STEVENSON UNIVERSITY OWINGS MILLS CAMPUS:
Owings Mills, Maryland
Located next to the Owings Mills Campus, the Ravens football team training facility became available to Stevenson University when Baltimore’s NFL team moved to their new headquarters. Stevenson University purchased the entire property which included 37,000 square feet of floor space in a two story building. Stevenson asked J.T. Fishman & Associates to convert the existing facility to a wellness and athletic center for their campus.
The program includes a fitness center, locker rooms for both the men and women athletic department, training facilities, offices for coaching staff, a wellness center, student lounges and canteen and classrooms.
JTFA worked with the school’s Athletic Department and re-defined the use of the building to conform to the new needs of the school. Knowing the existing building’s history (housing two NFL teams), JTFA identified, saved and re-used many of the lockers that were used by local heroes. Additionally, the trophy case which housed “Super-ball” trophies were saved and reused as part of the school trophy display.
