The project consists of three buildings and associated site improvements. The main training center building comprising 36,000 square feet is a single story structure constructed of CMU perimeter walls with brick veneer. Roofing is of standing seam metal construction. The classically proportioned façade is clad in brick veneer in an alternating/repetitive pattern, which helps maintain a rhythmic order to the structure, while reducing the apparent mass of the building and provide human scale to the facility. The building also features a full-height glazed entrance vestibule – an architectural feature that signifies 'entry' – which acts as a thermal buffer to the main lobby area. The lobby features a 20-foot ceiling and an overall high level of finish, including an aesthetically pleasing, as well as durable quarry tile floor. The two accessory buildings (a 1,400 sf unheated storage building and a combined 9,300 sf organizational/maintenance shop and unheated storage building) also are single-story structures constructed of CMU perimeter walls with brick veneer. Roofing is of barrel-vaulted, standing seam metal construction.
