WHPacific was contracted to provide design and construction documents for a Field Maintenance Shop (FMS) for the Arizona Army National Guard. This is the first project at the Florence Military Reservation. Within the next five years, two readiness centers, barracks and other facilities will be constructed. The FMS is presently under construction. The 19,800 SF building includes eight work bays, including a lubrication bay and a 15-ton crane. Supporting building spaces include tool and supply rooms, storage, offices, physical training room, classroom and locker rooms.
Cost effective energy conserving features are incorporated into the design. The building has been designed to be LEED® Gold
Exterior supporting facilities include main access roadway into the facility from the State Highway, private owned vehicle parking, military parking, vehicle wash platform, loading ramp, flammable storage area, and controlled waste handling facility.
All utilities (power, communication, water, sewer and gas) are being brought into the site. Physical security measures are being incorporated into the design including maximum feasible standoff distance from roads, parking areas, and vehicle unloading areas.
