Work continues on the site preparation for the Football Annex. The new construction will tag onto the end of the existing building. The several offices on the North face of the building have all been temporarily relocated.

View of what will be the front corner of the annex. Work on the foundation continues, with much of the footings already poured.

Note the far right-hand office, which used to belong to Defensive Coordinator Joe Kines. He and Paul Randolph (office immediately to the left) have been moved to other rooms on the second floor.

The enhanced Strength and Conditioning Center will include an expanded Sports Medicine Facility to give athletes a superior level of care so they can continue to compete or quickly return to action if they're injured. Expansion and remodeling will add over 30,000 square feet to the existing football building.

Workers spent Wednesday putting the stadium signs in place.

The University of Alabama seal adorns the corner of the power plant. To the right is the edge of the Track Field. After the sides are bricked up, a new scoreboard will be added to this wall.
