MONTGOMERY, Ala. (August 11, 2015) – Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood, Inc., (GMC) announced that it has completed the acquisition of Montgomery-based Infinity Architecture, a leader in the design of athletic and academic facilities.
Drawing from Infinity Architecture’s expertise, the firm will launch GMC Sports – a specialty market within the Architecture Division dedicated to sports facility design.
“GMC and Infinity have competed for many projects over the years, and we’ve both won our fair share,” said GMC CEO Bill Wallace, AIA. “They have an incredible sports portfolio that will add an extra layer of expertise to our work in that market, and at the end of the day, we feel like this collaboration is going to be better for both organizations.”
Infinity Architecture has worked on more than 57 projects at Auburn University alone over the last decade, including the nation’s largest college video board at Jordan-Hare Stadium, which will be up and running for the 2015 football season. The firm also designed the Tigers’ Indoor Practice Facility, Jordan-Hare Stadium Home Locker Room and Lower Level Lobby Renovations, Baseball Locker Room and Clubhouse and Soccer and Track Facility. Other notable projects include the AUM Wellness Center, Clemson University Indoor Football Practice Facility, Samford University Track and Soccer Facility, Jacksonville State University Softball Facility and Faulkner University Football Stadium.
“This opportunity is great for Infinity Architecture, and we think it’s great for GMC,” said Yann Cowart, AIA, a former Infinity Architecture principal and one of the leaders of GMC Sports. “We’re already collaborating on several projects and think there are great opportunities there on the sports side. Our goal over the next 10-15 years is to make GMC the premier sports group here in the South.”
Teams from both firms have been working on integration plans to ensure a seamless transition for Infinity Architecture’s people and clients. Infinity Architecture’s employees are expected to move from their current location on Carmichael Parkway to the GMC-Montgomery office on EastChase Lane this fall.
“This is a great time for our firm and our staff to join the GMC family,” said Gary Greenshields, AIA, former Infinity Architecture president and one of the leaders of GMC Sports. “We believe our strengths and our people are a good fit to expand our horizons, and it’s just really exciting.”
