TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama will build a $9 million, two-story training facility for athletes.
University system trustees on Wednesday approved construction of the 34,495-square-foot building between the indoor practice facility and athletic complex. It's expected to be completed by January.
The facility will include a weight room, rehabilitation and cardio area, strength coaches' offices and a nutrition bar and juice room.
It will connect to the indoor facility and athletic building through a connecting corridor.
The university said the Crimson Tide Foundation will pay for $965,317 of the project with the remaining $8.1 million funded by future revenue bonds.
Alabama received a waiver on the bidding process and awarded the nearly $600,000 contract to Birmingham firm Davis Architects. The company oversaw the expansion of both end zones at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
