Georgia Southern University is a public research university located in Statesboro, Georgia. The GSU Athletic Foundation saw that the school was in need of a new football operations center for their expanding football program and contracted with Evans for the turnkey construction of the building.
Located at the East end zone of Paulson Stadium, the 50,000 SF two-story building is composed of a concrete cast-in-place structure supported with conventional steel and a standing seam metal and TPO roof system. The facility’s exterior is finished with a combination of brick, stucco, metal panel and curtain wall veneer. The building houses several different areas including team locker rooms, strength training facilities, staff offices, meeting rooms, a video production suite and the Hall of Fame. Scope of work included complete shell building construction with finishes and a comprehensive site work package. Evans used aggressive value engineering and cost control measures to ensure that the project was delivered on time and within the foundation’s budget.
