The army continues to look at and invest in innovative ways to become greener and one solution is BeaverFit’s sustainable and customisable shelter solutions.
As industry leaders in the design and manufacture of containerised outdoor fitness setups and modular defence facilities, BeaverFit pledged to work towards a sustainability initiative of up to 96% of their modular builds being made of recyclable materials and renewable energy.
This started with the fully self-sufficient strength and conditioning shelter solution at Bulford Camp military base, this was a step into the future for the Field Army. Solar panels were installed for the shelter, making this solution the first ever flexible fully-sustainable fitness facility owned by the Armed Forces.
This large facility is the peak of innovation, set to introduce a new form of training for the troops that enables them to train in the elements. This ensures that they are mentally and physically prepared for weather variations when out on deployment and helps to avoid musculoskeletal injuries while also boosting their mental adaptation.
BeaverFits state-of-the-art sustainable shelter solutions have supported the Field Army’s Optimising Human Performance (OHP) programme, which is designed to reduce injuries. Today, the BeaverFit team have designed, manufactured and installed over 40+ solutions for the British Army.
The fully enclosed training facilities, combined with a fully customised interior to support a variety of functions, are complete with optional lighting and HVAC, and offer further space for built-in storage, as well as separate recovery spaces designed for physical/occupational therapists, and modular office spaces designed for strength and conditioning professionals.
Chris Pike, Sales and Marketing Director at BeaverFit, says:-
“The BeaverFit modular and sustainable infrastructures have successfully aided the troops in their physical and mental health, as well as developing their outdoor fitness regimes. Our shelter solutions are more convenient and versatile than brick-built fitness centres. Equipment can be attached to both the outside and inside and can be moved around. These spaces can also be adapted to accommodate changing situations.”
Major General Neil Thorpe, added:-
“The Bulford Barracks facility is a genuine modern space, built to provide the troops with what they need to ensure their physical health and wellbeing, both in terms of what we do in the barracks and around the world. This is a real opportunity and a great asset to the British Army.”
BeaverFit continues to be a world leader in the design and manufacture of fitness equipment, container gyms and tactical training solutions for the military. No other company in this field has the ability to draw on such diverse experience and proven track record in human performance and operational training.
