NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk has plans for Tennessee’s expanded and renovated practice facility once construction adds 60,000 square feet more space to the building.

“I am thrilled to what this project will mean to the Tennessee Titans and I look forward to decorating our new lobby with a Lombardi Trophy,” Adams Strunk said.

She helped the Titans break ground Friday on the expansion of the team’s 75,000-square foot practice facility along with Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and U.S. Sens. Lamar Alexander and Marsha Blackburn. The Titans say they are paying for the multi-million dollar project.

Adams Strunk noted the team’s facility was state of the art when opened in late August 1999, and the Titans followed with a stretch through 2003 where the franchise ranked among the NFL’s winningest teams. She said this expansion and renovation will ensure the Titans players, coaches and staff have all the resources needed to win on the field.

The Titans have renovated their locker room, training room, weight room and cafeteria while also adding a television studio to the team’s headquarters in recent years.

But they also have added approximately 50% more employees over the last five years, so the new project will add more offices along with meeting spaces for players and staff along with updated training and recovery areas. The current building also will be renovated, while a hospitality area and parking garage also are part of the project.

“As we all know, there’s never enough parking in Nashville,” Adams Strunk said.
