Brasfield & Gorrie and Clemson University broke ground Dec. 7 on a $37.5-million expansion to the Division I university’s athletic facilities that included new and upgraded lakefront lacrosse, gymnastics and rowing facilities. The development’s lacrosse stadium will include bleacher seating and artificial turf, a 9,000-sq-ft operations complex and other amenities. A 21,000-sq-ft facility will be the home for day-to-day operations for the Clemson gymnastics team, with practice gym, offices, locker room, lounge and training area. The rowing center will be renovated with updates to the training room facility, building infrastructure and other cosmetic updates. A 10,000-sq-ft training and recovery facility will be built adjacent to the three facilities.
Brasfield & Gorrie also celebrated the topping out of Spirit Airlines’ new headquarters in Dania Beach, Fla. The project includes corporate offices, a crew training facility with flight simulator, an amenity building and a 1,010-space parking garage.

An Alberici-Mortenson joint venture has completed $600 million in improvements to the U.S. naval submarine base in Kings Bay, Ga., supporting the Columbia-class submarine as it comes online in the coming years as well as supporting eight Ohio-class submarines homeported at the base to keep up with maintenance schedules. The Trident Refit Facility Kings Bay held a ribbon cutting Oct. 18 for the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Southeast recapitalization, which began in summer 2020. The three-phase project included construction of temporary work and storage spaces, replacement of roof and wall panels, recoating all structural steel, replacement of utility systems supporting docked submarines and replacement of all the dry dock systems that move water in and out of the dock.
