AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - The Auburn Board of Trustees approved the selection of the architectural team of Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood of Montgomery for the Auburn Football Performance Center.

The team was awarded the project with HOK Architects of Kansas City, Mo., who will serve as consultants in the development and design process.

“We appreciate the Auburn Board of Trustees approving and authorizing the architect selection phase of the football performance center,” Auburn Director of Athletics Allen Greene said. “We are looking forward to developing a first-class facility for our football program and are excited to partner with nationally renowned architectural firms on this transformational project.”

Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood, one of the largest architecture and engineering firms in the Southeast, has worked with HOK previously on Clemson Football’s building project. HOK has worked on other football projects at Georgia, Florida, Northwestern, Ohio State and Penn State.

This September, the board unanimously voted to approve the initiation of the new football performance center.

“The football performance center will be incredibly beneficial to Auburn football and the future of our program,” Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said. “Most importantly, it will give our student-athletes the best resources to help reach their maximum potential on and off the field. We are thankful for the Auburn University leadership and their commitment to this facility.”
