The Henry Dale and Betty Smith Football Center
Clayco and Lamar Johnson Collaborative provided design-build for a 200,000-square-foot headquarters and training facility for the Baltimore Ravens. Located on 32 acres in Northwest Regional Park in Baltimore County, the complex evokes a country manor feel with brick, stone and plaster facades, granite turrets, and copper downspouts and gutters. The Ravens invested in a number of upgraded materials to invoke a rich image, including cherry lockers and natural stone. Clayco provided complete turn-key delivery of this project, assisting with everything from site selection and development to final furniture delivery.
The headquarters building includes hot and cold treatment pools, a physical therapy/conditioning pool, a state-of-the-art auditorium with multiple breakout rooms, a players lounge, a Hall of Fame corridor, a boardroom, owners’ offices, three stone fireplaces and a full-service kitchen. The training facility features a 10,000-square-foot weight room (one of the largest in the NFL), a spinning room, a basketball court and racquetball courts that provide additional training opportunities for players and staff alike.
The 90,000-square-foot field house contains a full-length indoor practice field with 85-foot-high ceilings, allowing the Ravens to punt inside. The complex also contains a maintenance building, two NFL standard, fully drained outdoor fields, two crowned fields and enough parking to accommodate all guests, employees, coaches and players. Football operations are separate and secure from media and public areas.
