CBRN Response Training Facility
The CBRN Response Training Facility occupies approximately 40 acres and provides an unmatched state-of-the-art training facility for all authorized response agencies. The US Army Chemical School is the Department of Defense lead for Joint CBRN Response Training. The project involved multiple buildings in a town setting, with construction varying between structural stud frame with masonry & insulated panel veneer, and pre-engineered structures. Portions of the project were awarded via the design-build method, with KCI and Black & Veatch teaming. Buildings provide classrooms, office space, labs, after-action review rooms, and decontamination training bays. Underground tunnels connect the buildings of the Urban Training Area, and replicate a cave complex to support enclosed space, clandestine laboratory, and chemical/biological munitions cache training scenarios.
