The Pentagon Athletic Center

Arlington, VA

The new world-class Pentagon Athletic Center (PAC) replaces the outdated 55-year-old athletic facility with a larger, modern facility. The building includes enhanced programming spaces necessary to meet the fitness and readiness needs of its current military and civilian membership, as well as projected membership growth for upcoming years.

PAC, designed by HNTB and Counsilman-Hunsaker, incorporated sustainable concepts in design and construction. The design not only helps to create a functional, durable, maintainable, flexible, and safe facility, it also contributes to a healthy indoor environment and enhanced productivity.

This is an excellent pool for lap swimming, recreational swimming, exercise classes, and other activities.

Amenities include:

  • 3,843 sq. ft. Lap/Fitness Pool
  • 25-meter competition pool six lap lanes and recessed stairs
  • Two oversized whirlpool spas
  • Energy efficient filtration systems
  • Energy mechanical systems
  • Specialized light wells to add extra sunlight

The project has achieved the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver rating for energy efficient design.
