Fawley Bryant Architecture (FBA), has announced the launch of its sports division. With construction value equating to more than $500 million in sports-related work since 2017, the division will serve the firm’s roster of clients while expanding the market segment for the company. Recently completed work includes projects for seven Major League Baseball teams; the Professional Bull Riding Association in Pueblo, Colorado; master planning for IMG Academy in Bradenton; and Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York. FBA is currently working with the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins on the renovation and expansion of its spring training home in Jupiter, Florida.
Leading the new division is Kirk Bauer, promoted to director of sports. In his new role, Bauer will be responsible for the oversight of all sports projects and division-specific client relations, staff management and business development efforts. FBA also recently hired Shane Johnson, who will act as senior project manager for the sports division. The division is also supported by four dedicated architectural staff members and the FBA design team.
