Project Description

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, Block Bianco 2CM Pavers, 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.
