Band Training Facility
Fort Carson, Colorado

The Band Training Facility is an award-winning design-build project completed for the US Army Corps of Engineers and is located at Fort Carson, Colorado. This 12,480 square foot structure was designed to meet LEED® Silver environmental design standards and when complete was certified LEED® Gold. It is the first building on Fort Carson to use geothermal wells for energy efficient heating and cooling.

The facility is a state-of-the-art training center for a 45-person band and is intended to be similar to a comparable university band practice facility and recording studio in the civilian sector. The Band Training Facility also houses practice and rehearsal rooms, a recording/audio control room, administrative area, instrument cleaning, instrument storage, day area, rest rooms, and storage.

The unique features of this building are the acoustical requirements and the special humidification requirements needed for the storage of the instruments. The overall configuration of the Band Training Facility is designed to continue the architectural design character of Fort Carson while planning for the future.

Work on the project included design, surveying, site work, site utilities, site concrete, construction of the building, interior finishes, landscaping, storm water drainage, mechanical, electrical, and communications.

The project earned an Outstanding USACE Performance Evaluation and the DBIA Rocky Mountain Region 2009 award for Best Project Public Building under $15 million.
