A Top-Notch Facility for our Military Reserves

This project consisted of a 224,486-s.f. Armed Forces Reserve Center (AFRC), a 32,652-s.f. Vehicle Maintenance Shop (VMS) and a 14,741-s.f. Organizational Unit Storage Facility (UHS) located in Bell, California. The buildings are permanent construction with reinforced concrete foundations, concrete floor slabs, and mechanical systems including air conditions (estimated at 600 tons), electrical systems and physical security measures. Sustainable principals are integrated into the design, development, and construction of the project. Supporting facilities include land clearing, paving, fencing, a Deployable Medical System (DEPMEDS) site, general site improvements, and extensions of utilities. Accessibility for the disabled is provided. Anti-terrorism and Force Protection (ATFP) measures are incorporated into design including maximum standoff distance from roads, parking areas and vehicle unloading areas.

The Armed Forces Reserve Center (AFRC) facility consists of a training facility with administrative, assembly, kitchen, weapons vault, educational, storage, special training, and support areas for sixteen (16) Army Reserve Units, six (6) Army National Guard Units, two (2) Marine Corps Reserve Units, and thirty-two (32) Naval Reserve Units. The Vehicle Maintenance Shop (VMS) provides work bays and maintenance administrative support areas. The unheated Organizational Unit Storage (UHS) is provided for storage of equipment and training materials. A DEPMEDS site will provide training support for assigned medical units. The project also provides adequate parking space for all military and privately-owned vehicles.
