Pentagon Athletic Center

Arlington, VA
Owner: Pentagon Renovation Program
Architect: HNTB Architects
Engineer: E.K. Fox & Assoc., Ltd
Contract Value: $6.8 Million

This design-build project replaces the 58 year-old athletic facility at the Pentagon with a larger and modern facility of approximately 120,000 sq. ft. This new facility, known as the Pentagon Athletic Center (PAC), includes a swimming pool; racquetball, basketball, volleyball, squash and badminton courts; aerobics/fitness rooms; an indoor running track; locker rooms; and administrative offices.  In addition, this project incorporates an auditorium, a state of the art audio-visual studio, computer room facilities, an executive motor pool and some general office spaces.

This unique facility incorporates over 180,000 pounds of ductwork, 10 modular AHU’s plus a customized AHU for the pool area, 17 computer room units, 22 VFD’s, extensive steam and hydronic piping modifications (including the extension of two 24” chilled water lines) and major domestic water pipe revisions (including the relocation and encasement of a 24” domestic water line).  Budget and schedule results were optimized through our close working relationship with the Owner, Architect, Engineer and other members of the Design Build Team.  All of this was accomplished in the presence of heightened security at one of the world’s most sensitive locations.
