Louisiana State University

LSU Football Operations Facility Renovation

Built in Baton Rouge on the banks of the Mississippi River, Louisiana State University (LSU) is a public university with a rich history and vibrant student life. The school began as a military academy, but while the customary blue and white military colors changed to Mardi-Gras-inspired purple and gold not long after the start of their athletic program, the teams’ spirit and discipline carries on to reflect their early heritage.  

When the university decided to invest in the renovation and expansion of their Football Operations Facility, they turned to Salas O’Brien for engineering expertise to ensure the project’s success. The main focus of the project was the expansion of the facility’s weight room. This involved a 5,000-square-foot addition, division of the space into two levels, and new flooring and ceiling installations. The renovation to the weight room added new exercise equipment, a five-zone directional speaker system, over 30 televisions, and design that reflects the university’s distinctive colors and mascot—Mike the Tiger. The project also included the expansion and renovation of the team’s locker room, training room, and coaches’ offices.

Our team provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for this project, and the finished product is a stunning, state-of-the-art facility that boasts both efficiency and reliability.
