The University of Alabama’s Board of Trustees approved funding for a $9.1 million strength and conditioning facility.
The 34,495 square-foot facility will be two stories tall and should be completed and in use by January, 2013.
Included will be a “juice room.”
Excerpt from Andrew Gribble of Birmingham News:
The facility, according to the proposal, will include a check-in desk, weight room, cardio/rehab area, strength coaches’ offices, graduate assistant workrooms, nutrition bar, juice room, restrooms, medical office suite, elevator, janitor’s closet and storage.
While it plans to be located at the heart of Alabama’s football headquarters, the building will be open and used by all of the university’s athletic programs.
Asked about the rumored project in May, Nick Saban said it’s important for Alabama to “stay on the cutting edge.”
