Fort Polk Fitness Center

Remade workout facilities

Garver’s multi-disciplined design team provided the Wheelock Fitness Center at Fort Polk with a renovated space bolstered by improved aesthetics and electrical upgrades. The design focused on temperature comfort and humidity control, while new LED lighting technology provides a reduction in energy consumption and maintenance costs. Garver’s solution incorporates an outside air system with energy recovery wheel, variable flow supply fan, variable flow exhaust fan, space carbon dioxide monitoring and a forced-air transfer system. The red and blue tile work, locker rooms, and accent colors deviate from Fort Polk’s standard olive, lending energy to the space and increasing the aesthetic appeal.
