    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Designed to support the day-to-day activities of players, coaches and staff, the new Allen N. Reeves Football Complex further elevates Clemson’s football program and promotes the recruitment, training and development of student-athletes. The goal was to create a home away from home for the national champion Clemson Tigers football team, their coaches and staff, making it the most programmatically inclusive football-specific training facility in the nation. Clemson spared no expense to create a space that can cater to its student athletes and recruit the nation’s top football talent.

The 142,500-sq.-ft. facility was constructed adjacent to Clemson’s Indoor Football Practice Facility and the existing outdoor practice fields, bringing all football activity into close proximity and allowing for more efficient daily operations.

Building a state-of-the-art facility in only 13 months while honoring the team’s stringent football practice and game schedule just in time for the new recruiting season proved challenging. With 80-plus subcontractors in place and 200-plus workers on site at any given time, the team managed numerous steps and logistics to finalize the project two weeks ahead of schedule.

At Clemson, the team implemented a number of safety measures, such as laying down a graded aggregate base that created a safer walking environment for the crew and installing a tent to serve as a break area that would shelter workers from intense South Carolina summer heat. Additionally, by installing the structure steel quickly, the site’s canopy was able to be installed sooner and provide even more shade during work hours.

First impressions are everything, whether you’re an athlete trying to get recruited by a stellar school or a school trying to recruit a stellar athlete. The new Clemson football complex is designed to do just that while also demonstrating Tiger pride. From the expansive and welcoming entrance draped in the school’s colors of orange and purple to the enormous weight room devoted to the team’s strength and endurance training, the facility has a specific design component to bring to life Clemson Football as well as a representation of Clemson Athletics.
