New Construction Armory, Storage & Vehicle Maintenance Buildings

Palm Coast Readiness Center

Project Brief

The Palm Coast Readiness Center is a 76,000 SF, 2-story armory building designed for the Florida Army National Guard in Flagler County, Florida. The design includes enhancements and equipment for energy conservation.

New Construction Readiness Center and support facilities including offices, classrooms, personnel support areas as well as a central drill hall/ assembly hall space with kitchen. Hardened structure and UFC require that stand-off distances provide blast resistance required by government agencies. Hurricane resistant construction throughout the exterior envelope increases building sustainability.

Energy efficient design and low maintenance materials used throughout ensure overall building longevity and reduced operating costs. The facility is designed and engineered to follow green building practices set forth by USGBC.

Hazardous and flammable storage buildings are located at the facility as well as generator power to serve the Readiness Center during emergency events. Finally, fence protection control fencing is planned at the frontage of the property to increase anti-terrorism measures.
