Alaska National Guard DMVA Bethel Readiness Center
UNIT and its design team worked with the State of Alaska Department of Transportation to design and construct a 22,760 SF facility for the Department of Military Veteran Affairs (DMVA). The Bethel Readiness Center is part of the national program to construct military ready facilities throughout the country.
The project consists of a classroom wing with an assembly area for military personnel training exercises. The storage area has over 75 individual wardrobe lockers to accommodate military personnel. This structure is a single story steel frame supported on shallow concrete foundations on a prepared refrigerated building pad. This project was designed to a LEED Silver standard; implementation of the LEED certification is an option for the Air National Guard/ADOT&PF.
