The Dome Lift in 50 Seconds

The AdvoCare Sports Performance Center serves as a multi-functional facility for athletic training, physical therapy, and major events. The facility, set in the mountains of West Virginia, includes a physical therapy suite, NFL weight and locker rooms, and a large hydro-pool. Numerous multi-purpose rooms and large terraces on the second floor allow viewing of the three new practice fields. The interior was designed to complement the Greenbrier Resort & Casino, from French doors with brass fixtures, crown molding, to the regal checkerboard flooring.The grand style continues into the Saints’ locker and weight rooms, with beautiful maple veneer locker cabinetry. Custom flooring in these areas touts the Saints and the Greenbrier. State-of-the-art audio and video systems in the weight room and the large meeting rooms enhance training and coaching interactions.Integral to the project were the three football fields—two sod and one synthetic turf. The two sod fields are regulation-size and are positioned side-by-side with a 30-foot run-off perimeter.

Clancy & Theys takes great pride in achieving the Owner’s goal and exceeding their expectations. We thank the entire team whose dedication and talent made this extraordinary endeavor possible..

We love football! So, Clancy & Theys is super proud to have recently completed construction of the AdvoCare Sports Performance Center at the Greenbrier, which is also home to the New Orleans Saints annual training camp. Our team worked around-the-clock to ensure the facility was finished in time for the Saints to begin their preseason training camp in July.

In just 124 days, Clancy & Theys managed a massive site package that included three regulation football fields, over 500,000 cubic yards of shale infill, brick pavers, cobblestone curbs, and detailed landscaping. A new 53,400 sq ft, two-story metal building with insulated panels and EIFS accent bands was constructed. Additional structural components were added to the building to create a porte-cochere and terrace—to complement the existing aesthetic of the Greenbrier. “
