AUBURN MEN’S BASKETBALL LOCKER ROOM

ARCHITECT:

GENSLER ARCHITECTS

PROJECT LOCATION:

AUBURN, ALABAMA 

CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCE

White-Spunner Construction was selected as the general contractor to manage the Auburn Men’s Basketball Locker Room Renovation project during the summer of 2019. With less than six months, the locker room was stripped down to the studs and renovated. WSC installed new lockers, graphics, showers, bathrooms, film room, meeting room, athletic training facilities, and press conference area. The renovations included creating a “Hype Room” for players to get ready before taking the court on game days. With less than six months, numerous days blocked out due to graduations, children’s basketball camps, an active campus, and only four parking spots for laydown and staging, this was a challenging site with a compressed schedule.

HANK AARON STADIUM

ARCHITECT:

VOLKERT AND ASSOCIATES 

PROJECT LOCATION:

MOBILE, ALABAMA

CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCE

With a construction deadline of only seven months, a completion date that could not be changed and $4 million over budget at bid, this was the project status when the City of Mobile asked White-Spunner Construction for help. Immediately, the company spent time up front for value engineering and redesigning what might be considered the highest profile project in the history of Mobile. White-Spunner Construction completed the 6,000-seat pre-stressed concrete baseball stadium on the original opening date.

MOBILE MUSEUM OF ART

ARCHITECT:

THE ARCHITECTS GROUP, INC. 

PROJECT LOCATION:

MOBILE, ALABAMA

CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCE

For construction of the Mobile Museum of Art, The City of Mobile chose to work with a construction manager who could meet the unique needs of what would be the city’s newest showplace. The biggest challenge for this project was to incorporate the museum’s two existing buildings into the new facility, both of which were on different elevations. It would have been easier to demolish both; however, the museum saved costs by keeping the two existing buildings and developing a transitional gallery between them. Building materials created another challenge as they were chosen for cost and durability but required a long lead time. The project was completed on time and within budget, resulting in an elegant facility for the city of Mobile and its visitors.
