University of Maryland’s new football facility is transformational for players with renovations from Hollman Athletic lockers.
After years of planning and building, the University of Maryland unveiled Jones-Hill House, a brand-new facility that will home their football program. With a revamp in mind, Hollman Inc. became involved to create an eye-catching locker room to complement the other remodels.
The University of Maryland’s goals with the renovations were to improve the program’s ability to develop a student-athlete experience and attract recruits. Hollman’s engineering and research and development teams got creative by designing a locker that emphasized storage, ventilation, and representation of the great state of Maryland.
The lockers are comprised of hybrid materials with a solid surface, Nanolam, the latest micro-technology lamination whose super-opaque surface has a velvet, soft-to-the-touch finish. Each locker included powder-coated, stainless-steel edging and additional phenolic and acrylic finishes. Above all, the real attraction is the high degree of personalization and branding that went into each locker and cubby.
The new lockers each include custom, backlit nameplates with each player’s head shots, position, and hometown. All include lower ventilated deck pullout drawers with a custom monochrome facsimile of the state flag of Maryland, embossed on a perforated metal grill.
In addition to the lockers, each of the 126 cubbies featured an overstuffed custom leather Captain’s Chair, embossed with Maryland’s classic M Bar logo, capable of fully reclining. The recliners also featured full power outlets, USB charging stations, and Digilock, a secure and lockable storage area with vertically recessed interior lighting.
“This is the standard for Maryland,” University of Maryland’s Damon Evans exclaims, “This is the standard that we have to set when we build facilities here for our student-athletes. We talk about inspiring Maryland pride. This inspires pride”.
Hollman completed the University of Maryland locker room renovation and installation in conjunction with local women-owned business enterprises, who sourced 10% of all materials, goods, and services to benefit the immediate community.
With renovations being complete, the Terrapins were ready for their upcoming season and, with the help of Hollman, had the perfect locker room for it.
