Joint Force Readiness Center for SD Army National Guard

Constructed as two separate phases due to funding issues, the Joint Force Readiness Center is a LEED-Rated three-story masonry structure located on Camp Rapid of the SD Army National Guard.

The design considered detailed threat assessments and structure hardening in addition to the more common anti-terrorism/force protection requirements (AT/FP) for portions of the building exterior. The National Guard Bureau was consulted and gave guidance as to the final requirements for AT/FP that were used in the final design for the project.
