This project includes the design and construction of a 163,936 square foot Army Reserve Training Center, and a 17,663 square foot Vehicle Maintenance Shop. The Training Center is a one and two-story structure constructed of load-bearing, tilt-up concrete wall panels, two-story with steel floor and roof structure. It contains administrative and training spaces for United States Army Reserve and Oklahoma National Guard staff. Interior construction is two-story masonry. Most offices are open office style, allowing daylighting to permeate the facility. Multiple classrooms for training Reserve and Guard staff are provided on the first floor. Folding partitions allow the classrooms to be configured to accommodate small, medium and large classes. Classrooms are fully equipped with seating and work surfaces, audio visual equipment, separate wireless networks for National Guard and Army Reserve, and marker boards.
A weapons simulator provides “high tech” weapons training space. Heated warehouse spaces are provided in a separate wing of the Training Center. The warehouse spaces are constructed with a 25’ clear height, ESFR fire protection systems and reinforced concrete floor to accommodate racked pallet storage. The Vehicle Maintenance Shop contains a fluid distribution area, tool, supply, and storage rooms, battery room, IT rooms, and a break room. Maintenance bays are industrial spaces served by bridge cranes, emergency eyewash stations, piped lube water, compressed air dispensing systems, and vehicle exhaust reels.
The facilities achieved LEED certified Gold and met all Anti-terrorism and Force Protection Standards
