Towson Company Awarded Contract For UMD Athletic Complex
TOWSON, MD — A Towson firm was recently granted a contract to renovate the field hockey and lacrosse complex at the University of Maryland.
The Maryland Board of Public Works authorized the $6.135 million contract award to Jeffrey Brown Contracting of Towson during its most recent meeting.
Jeffrey Brown Contracting is based at 400 East Joppa Road in Towson. It has worked with higher education institutions for more than 20 years, according to the company, which reported it renovated the men’s basketball and lacrosse team rooms at Loyola University as well.
Officials said the job at the University of Maryland College Park includes design-build services, including demolition and second floor construction.
Demolition is needed to allow for a 15,340-square-foot building, so the size of the complex will nearly double, according to the Baltimore Business Journal, which reported a second contract will come before the Board of Public Works before the $11 million lacrosse and field hockey complex is complete in 2023.
