Papago Park Readiness Center

Location: Phoenix

Client: Arizona Army National Guard

Completion Date: 2009

Burns & McDonnell provided architectural and engineering services for the new 89,560-square-foot Papago Park Readiness Center, a facility to support the Arizona National Guard. It includes administrative, assembly, education, storage, maintenance, vault and training areas.

The readiness center was constructed with a permanent steel frame and decorative concrete block, with concrete floors and a standing-seam metal roof. Construction included cost-effective energy conservation methods, mechanical and electrical equipment installation, pre-wired work station installation, and emergency power generator backup.

Supporting facilities include military and privately owned vehicle parking, security fencing and lighting, force protection, and a telcom system designed to include a mass notification system. The facility houses a combat support brigade and a military police battalion.
