Overview

Adjacent to the Baltimore waterfront, Under Armour’s new 300,000-square-foot corporate headquarters will feature collaborative hybrid spaces, a flagship retail store and state-of-the-art sports facilities. The campus includes pedestrian pathways throughout and along the waterfront.

We provided structural engineering services to Gensler to design the mass-timber structure for this one-of-a-kind facility that is set to achieve net-zero operations and other significant sustainability goals. 

Highlights

  • The five-story building features architecturally exposed timber and concealed timber connections.
  • The use of mass timber made it possible to use a shallow foundation system, yielding significant construction savings on the project.
  • A 30-foot square bay module uses cross-laminated timber decks along with glulam beams and columns.
  • The structure supports a steel-framed photovoltaic (PV) canopy above the building, free standing site PV canopies and a secondary-exoskeleton ETFE façade system.
