What was Alexander Memorial Coliseum will soon be McCamish Pavilion, named for Henry F. “Hank” McCamish, Jr. (IM ‘50) whose family made an eight-figure commitment toward the construction of the new home of the Yellow Jackets’ men’s and women’s basketball teams. The McCamish Pavilion, which will have a seating capacity of 8,800, was designed from the inside out with the idea to enhance the fan experience. There will be improved chair-back seating, a new second-tier balcony overlooking the court, a state-of-the-art, center-hung scoreboard and theatrical lighting. The student sections will be behind one basket and along the sideline with close proximity to Cremins Court. There will be an outdoor courtyard to honor William Alexander and the basketball teams’ notable accomplishments.
John and Mary Brock Indoor Football Practice Facility
In September 2011 Georgia Tech opened the doors to the John and Mary Brock Indoor Football Practice Facility. Mary R. and John F. Brock, III (ChBE ’70, MS ChBE ’71) made the seven-figure commitment which turned this dream into a reality. The 80,000-square-foot indoor facility provides the football program flexibility in scheduling practices and strengthens Tech’s ability to attract the best student-athletes around the nation.
Ken Byers Tennis Complex
In 2010, Kenneth G. Byers, Jr. (EE ’66, MS EE ’68) and his wife, Trish, made a seven-figure commitment that will result in the construction of a new tennis facility on the site of the existing Bill Moore Tennis Center. A ground breaking ceremony was held June 15, 2012, and construction should be completed early next year. The plans include an indoor tennis pavilion, six indoor courts, ten outdoor courts, men’s and women’s locker rooms and coaches’ offices.
Noonan Golf Facility*
The Noonan Golf Facility - *name pending approval by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia - is currently in the planning stages and construction is provisionally scheduled to begin in the spring of 2013. Thomas E. Noonan (ME ’83) and Kim P. Noonan (IM ’83) provided the lead commitment for the golf program.
The project encompasses a total renovation of the existing site, which is located adjacent to the Georgia Tech campus between 14th and 16th Streets. When completed, the facility will include a teaching center, a comprehensive practice area, a par-3 course and a newly constructed, state-of-the-art clubhouse.
