The Merritt Athletic Club recently underwent 20 million dollars in renovations and was voted the best gym in Baltimore, MD. The downtown location contains a running track, racquetball and basketball courts, and a spacious outdoor rooftop swimming pool. The crown jewel of the renovations is a 25,000 square-foot rooftop deck, located on top of the new fitness area and six floors of parking. The deck includes a children’s pool, an adults-only pool, and a hot tub. The deck also features a full bar and restaurant complete with 360-degree views of the city. During colder months, the area could be used to host gym members watching a Ravens or Orioles game from the rooftop deck.
The rooftop deck was constructed using Bison Versadjust Pedestals and Paver Trays. The Bison Paver Tray System not only offers a simple and lightweight paver backing to enhance the structural integrity of the pavers, but also allows for design flexibility and functionality in the space.
