The New York Liberty have recently unveiled their new 6,000-sf locker room and lounge at Barclays Center. The project was designed and completed by a team of women from Shawmut Design and Construction and Generator Studios with women’s comfort and preferences in mind.
The project was created for the Liberty’s first year playing their home games at Barclays Center. The redesigned space includes new lockers, a players’ lounge, new operating systems, and a shower and bathroom layout with extended space for dressing and makeup mirrors.
“Partnering with Generator Studios in design-build collaboration, we were proud to assemble a female-led design and construction team for the New York Liberty,” said David Margolius, Executive Vice President of Shawmut Design and Construction’s New York Metro region, in a release. “This is truly a project built by women, for women…On top of that, we delivered on our commitment to 100% WMBE (Women and Minority-Owned Business Enterprises) external subcontractors.”
The build team also partnered with Humanscale to provide ergonomic furnishings that add to the functionality of the space.
