UNC Basketball Locker Room

At the University of North Carolina the men’s basketball team not only sees the Dean Smith Centre as a sports arena, but as an important motivator for the players. The centre is also a valuable tool used for potential recruits, so after 15 years since the last update the elite team decided it was time for another upgrade that matched their reputation of producing top athletes, including NBA legend Michael Jordan. In addition to expected upgrades to showers and toilets, the extensive renovation also included a nutrition & beverage station, therapy areas, media room for press conferences and interviews, team meeting and video space, a players’ lounge and separate locker areas for players, coaches and staff.

Nearly 557m2 of large format, glass and mosaic tiles were installed by Neuse Tile Service Inc. during the locker room renovation, each with associated waterproofing and substrate preparation. To resolve many issues before and during the construction process, LATICRETE products were used - thanks to the rapid curing formula of HYDRO BAN® waterproofing, multiple phases of the work were able to proceed simultaneously with careful coordination.

"Our many years of experience, technical knowledge and craftsmanship as an NTCA Five Star Contractor were called upon during this process. That, and a great deal of collaboration from the entire construction team, as well as the product solutions from LATICRETE, made this tightly scheduled project a huge success", Nyle Wadford President of Neuse Tile Service, NTCA Five-Star Contractor.

The UNC’s men’s basketball locker room is now considered among the best locker rooms nationwide and continues to be a talking point for the school at large. Read the full Project Spotlight here
