Carlsbad Joint First Responders Training Facility

Civil Design Services – The complex consists of three buildings, including a two-story indoor shooting range and classroom building.  The range will actually contain two ranges, one 100 yards long and the other 25 yards long, and will have movable props and walls and light and smoke effects so officers can simulate scenarios they may encounter in real life.  The five-story tower will serve as a training ground for public safety workers and utility crews, and a smaller building will serve as a mock residence where firefighters can practice house fires and police can rehearse tactical responses.  A separate feature will be a simulated commercial storefront with movable props, to add a real-life touch to the training.

Our Design Team involvement was utility design and coordination with KHA in California.
