FOC Renovations Renderings


Following an offseason that saw major renovations to Williams Stadium, Liberty Athletics next football upgrade project is focusing on the base of operations for the program.

Shortly after the conclusion of the 2018 football season, Liberty's first campaign at the FBS level, the Williams Football Operations Center started a $25 million renovation project that is scheduled for completion in January 2020.

The video interview with McCaw is great but click on the renderings link and see the details. Awesome project!

That is really going to help enclose that side of the stadium. What a beautiful facility the Bill has become.

I like the fact that they narrowed it up a bit from the original renderings. That will allow them to build some additional seating on either side without affecting the actual FOC. We're probably years away from that type of expansion, but I'm glad they appeared to plan for it.
Hope they'll open it up for fans to tour once it's complete!

Are they adding a floor, or does the existing FOC have 3 floors already? :dontgetit

Completely Agree Old Red.

North Side looks much better than prior renderings and I like how the scoreboard border/structure looks much better. Not as imposing as 1st rendering without the wings, but makes much more sense for future seating. Looks like the inside is going to be 1st class as well. Nice work fellas.

looks nice. but smaller than originally planned? More efficient maybe?

and apparently the facade looks to have been recentered on the goal posts.

either way I guess they re-thought shoe horning soccer locker rooms in there?

never understood that train of thought.

those guys deserve their own, NEW space. #RedHeadedStepchildren

The last Liberty team that was referred to by that term on this board ended up with some pretty nice digs. Just sayin. 8)

Looks like there is room enough to squeeze an identical building right next to track building for soccer team ( at least from camera views )

I don't know what the soccer locker room idea was, but I heard yesterday, that we will be using soccer locker room for games, until FOC construction is finished.

That is not accurate. Liberty locker room is slated to be complete before the season begins.

From the ASOR Article:
A Sea of Red wrote:The locker room and training room facilities are expected to be functional in time for the start of the 2019 football season.
From the N&A:
Ian McCaw wrote:We’ll have access to the locker room through the season. That portion of the building will be complete so we’ll be able to utilize the building.

That's what I thought. Apparently I was given bad information, but it came from reliable individual.

This was a NEW SOURCE, that I have never used before. Looks as if this individual's reliability is on the line.

If it’s a new source how do you know he’s/she/xe is reliable? The opposite seems to be true :dontgetit
