This project was a training facility for the US Customs & Border Projection agency - 65,215 s.f.
It was one of approx. (15) structures on a larger complex.
The program consisted of:
(1) 100 yd weather protected rifle range with a 100, 50, 25, 15, 7, and 3 yd firing lines
(2) 25 yd weather protected firing ranges 25, 15, 7, and 3 yd firing lines
(1) 25 yd indoor firing range with a fixed 25 yd firing line, retrievable target system
(1) 25 yd indoor tactical firing range with 25, 15, 7, and 3 yd firing lines
(2) Cleaning rooms
Control booths and administration offices
The indoor firing ranges required a filtered air system with laminar air flow.
The ceiling was 100% ballistically protected and integrated interior lighting along with strobes.
Location: Harpers Ferry, WV, US
My Role: Project Architect
Additional Credits: The front entry was my design based on the aesthetic direction established by Burt Hill out of Baltimore.
Everything under the saw-tooth roofs was guided by practical concerns for air movement, weather protection and ballistic containment.
The foreground building shown in the first image is the Armory building. It was a stand alone project built before the firing range. I was the project architect for that project as well.
