As part of the U.S. Army’s “Grow the Army” initiative, which was intended to increase the Army’s size by nearly 75,000 soldiers, Fort Bliss was scheduled to receive upgrades in 2005. It was decided that a Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) gymnasium was needed to serve the soldiers.
HOW SPRUNG DELIVERED
Sprung supplied a cost-effective, durable structure to serve as the MWR gymnasium. Built using our patented tensioned membrane technology, the lightweight structure was erected in a fraction of the time it takes conventional construction. The clear-span design allowed for an open and aesthetically pleasing atmosphere to ensure soldiers got the most from their workouts.
In addition to the gym facility, Sprung supplied Fort Bliss with an additional 10 structures that were used in various ways.
