Civil Site Design

Cabbiness Engineering was a part of the design-build team with Pinnacle Design Group, LLC (PDG) that was selected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Fort Worth District, to complete the design and construction of a new 44,500 square foot fitness facility at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas.

The fitness center’s interior included a gymnasium, weight lifting area, steam room, locker rooms, running track on the 2nd floor, offices, and meeting areas. Situated on approximately two (2) acres, the facility’s exterior improvements included concrete sidewalks, concrete service drives, and a decorative military style “Troop Walk” around the perimeter of the site. Additionally, new site utilities such as domestic water, fire safety service lines, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, gas, electric service and multi-media communications were designed and installed to the new building. All of the project’s design was developed per the stringent US Army Corp of Engineers Southwestern Division, Architectural and Engineering Instructions Manual (AEIM). The successfully completed project achieved LEED Gold Certification as certified by independent 3rd party testing.


This project was also a part of the Medical Training Area Expansion in relation to the BRAC closures and expansions of medical facilities. With the completion of this project in January 2011, it now proudly assists and serves veteran’s returning home from war prone areas.
