Quackenbush Architects and Gensler Sports partnered to design the 110,000-square-foot Football Operations Building at the University of South Carolina. This facility will influence the future performance of Gamecock players, teams and coaches. With a focus on experiential design that helps to tell the Gamecock story, this state-of-the-art facility aims to efficiently support current players and staff, while inspiring future student athletes. Improved spaces for coaching and teaching optimize the training process in a branded environment. Additional program elements include: over 33,000 square feet of dedicated weight room and training space, a players’ lounge, flexible dining and event space for recruitment and donor initiatives, meeting rooms, administrative offices, locker rooms and more. This project is slated to break ground on April 1, 2017.
