Common Architectural Theme and Color Scheme for Harmony Church Fort Benning, Georgia
EXTERIOR COLOR CHARTS for INSTALLATION BUILDINGS
Colors schemes and building materials are critical design elements in relating adjacent buildings and creating a compatible visual environment within an installation. This section identifies the Army standard palette of colors that will unify installations. A sufficient color palette range is provided to allow for variety. General direction on the use and application of materials and their colors follows:
Avoid cluttered, cosmetic application of a number of different colors on a facade. The exterior color scheme should consist of a wall color, trim color, and an accent color, all of which should work together with the choice of roofing to provide a harmonious appearance compatible with adjacent structures and environs.
Select colors from the following Exterior Color Chart based upon their appropriateness to the building type, desired appearance, material to be painted, and prevailing architectural design and landscape character of the installation. Sustainability and ease of maintenance should also be considered.
Avoid garish colors. Strong or vibrant colors should be used with restraint and should be
limited to accents or focal points such as entrance doors where appropriate. PANTONE® COLORS
The six-digit color designations found in the Exterior Color Charts are numbers taken from the PANTONE for architecture and interiors color guide, which have been cross-referenced to the PANTONE process guide coated. The colors in the PANTONE process guide coated are intended for viewing on a color monitor and for printing on a four-color process printer (CMYK) using ISO 2846-1 inks. With proper calibration, colors viewed and printed should accurately represent the specified color.
Calibration for Dell FP E171 and 1800FP Monitor is per manufacturer’s recommendation.
Calibration for Hewlett Packard Color 4500 is per manufacturer’s recommendation.
For calibration of equipment other than the above, contact Pantone, Inc. at (201) 935-5500.
L.3.1 Due to calibration and other technical problems, the color of paint to be used should be based on manufacturer’s correspondence to the six-digit PANTONE Number and shall not be predicated on matching a computer-generated sample as seen in the Exterior Color Charts.
L.3.2 “White” when given without a number shall be construed as generic and is intended to cover those manufacturer’s paints and finished materials called “white”. Some slight variance may be discernible from one manufacturer to another.
Names given for colors are not those assigned by Pantone, Inc., but are the generic names used by the Army for general color identification only. Always use the six-digit PANTONE for architecture and interiors color guide number instead of the generic name when specifying a color.
