Armed Forces Readiness Center
L.R. Kimball designed a two-story masonry building of approximately 75,000 square feet located on the existing Williamsport Armory site. Accommodations for the Army Reserve unit and two National Guard units were addressed in the project design solutions. This training facility also houses offices and administrative areas as well as a separate building for vehicle maintenance.
This project received Silver Level Certification under the LEED NC 2.2 rating system.
This project also required a Special Exception to the City’s Zoning Ordinance since the proposed military facility was not an approved use of the property, even though the project site was the location of the existing military facility. We worked closely with the Pennsylvania Department of General Services, the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veteran Affairs, and the City of Williamsport to have the initial denial of the Special Exception vacated and to get the necessary Special Exception Permit granted by the Zoning Hearing Board.
