The W. S. Newell Company has been a part of many recreational facilities around Alabama.  The Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham was a challenging and exciting project for Newell to be a part of.  Newell also constructed the drag strip at the Montgomery Motorsports Park.

The company has served as site contractor for several sport complexes, more recently Opelika SportsPlex.

Newell excavated the Lake Frank Johnson, a 1,000 acre stream-feed reservoir located in Opp, AL.  Another attraction for the people of Alabama is The Blount Cultural Park and The Montgomery Museum of Fine Art.
