Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 15, 2007
lauckgroup, a Dallas-based firm with over two decades of experience in interior architecture, announces it is designing the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame's (NFF) new 6,200-square-foot headquarters facility located in Irving, Texas, part of the Dallas metropolitan area. NFF's headquarters has been moved from Morristown, New Jersey, to accommodate the organization's need for a more central national location.
Founded in 1947 by General Douglas MacArthur, Grantland Rice, and Army Coach Col. Earl "Red" Blaik, the NFF's mission is to promote the power of amateur football in developing the qualities of leadership, sportsmanship, competitive zeal and the drive for academic excellence in America's young people.
"We're excited to relaunch the National Football Foundation in Texas as we celebrate our 60th anniversary as an organization. Dallas was ultimately our choice because of its central location and convenience," said Steve Hatchell, President, National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. "Our new location provides greater accessibility for our members, the public and the media. lauckgroup is creating an efficient work environment for our team and a place where we can better connect."
Features of the new space include a large conference room, streamlined work areas, and a new storage system for NFF's extensive historical information. The space is expected to be completed by April 2007.
"NFF is evolving as an organization. Their new space will allow them to keep pace with their growth, connect with the community, and better manage the incredible archival footage and information they have compiled throughout their history," said Anne Kniffen, managing partner, lauckgroup. "We are creating a crisp, streamlined work environment that captures the energy of the organization and reflects their priorities."
