Canine Training Facility
Garver served as the prime designer of record for a new TSA Canine Training Center facility at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. The design-build project included design project management, design quality control; and architectural, civil, communications, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and fire protection design services. The 25,000-square-foot facility includes classrooms, offices, and a large gathering space to house a school that produces 230 canine/handler teams per year. Through the use of efficient water fixtures, recycled and local materials, Garver’s design included energy savings calculated at more than 30 percent.
The finished product was exactly what we envisioned – an open design that is as elegant as it is functional, and it will be in use for a long, long time.Greg Archer Garver Director of Architecture
