This past Sunday morning, ground was officially broken for the 17-acre site off Wooster Heights Road for a $33.9 million Armed Forces Reserve Center. Guests included: U.S Sen. Richard Blumenthal, left, and U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, second from left. The Design-Build facility will replace several antiquated Reserve centers and National Guard armories across the state. Watch live as the project is built.
The Armed Forces Reserve Center project is a Korte-Fusco joint venture project located in Danbury, CT includes three separate building: the training center, a vehicle maintenance shop, an unheated storage building and a wash bay.
The design of the training center focuses on local architecture and features Mid-Atlantic and New England architecture. As part of this design vernacular, stone cladding was a dominant element of the overall architecture.
