Armed Forces Reserve Center

Muskogee, Oklahoma

A proposed joint Oklahoma training facility had to be big enough for both guard and reserve forces.

The state of Oklahoma needed a dual-purpose armory facility that could house and train the state’s National Guardsmen and U.S. Army Reserve forces. Bringing the facility to life also meant maintaining the historical elements of the early 1800s and Oklahoma armories of the 1930s. The vision was entrusted to Haskell.

Advanced 3D modeling previews structure and brings modifications to the forefront.

Haskell’s combined armory design included 97,000 square feet of administrative and training areas, a drill floor, arms vaults, classrooms and a kitchen, all of which are designed to house more than 450 soldiers. The facility’s 7,500-square-foot drill hall features a 22′ eave height and barrel-vault roof, the focal point of the $23 million facility. The Haskell team designed the facility using Revit technology to give our client a 3D representation of the completed project. The approach allowed early identification and addressing of modifications.

We delivered the exact facility they sought.

Haskell teams work to ensure our clients are happy with their project upon completion and in this case flexibility, sustainability and communication created an optimal customer experience. The Revit technology offered the client an early opportunity to engage in the design process and voice their desire for modifications, which helped us deliver the exact facility they wanted.
