Chicago Bulls Locker Room & Advocate Center

When the Chicago Bulls decided it was time to update their locker rooms at the United Center, Senior Vice President of Operations Terry Savarise called upon Chicago Scenic to lend a hand. Teams worked together to refresh the look of team locker rooms as well as the Advocate Center, the Bulls' training facility just across the street.

Upon entering the Advocate Center, guests and players alike walk through a hall completely decked out with Bulls graphics and signage, as well as a wall of ‘half basketballs’ that are painted grey, silver, or gold to correspond to non-playoff years, playoff years, and winning years. Chicago Scenic worked with Fast Corporation of Sparta, Wisconsin to create a lasting, realistic basketball look – ultimately choosing to create several basketball molds from a real NBA ball and pull fiberglass castings to ensure they didn’t crack, deflate, or puncture.

Custom walnut benches line one side of the hallway, providing a place to sit and admire the colorful representation of Bulls playoff history.

Further into the building, a custom fit mesh wall connects to another basketball wall and 15 jerseys are cased and mounted to the mesh wall. The player timeline that runs along the opposite wall consists of more than 300 small plaques with the names of every Bulls player.

Across the street at the United Center, Chicago Scenic installed a third basketball wall in the player’s lounge adjacent to the locker room.
