Design/Build Small Arms Range
Groton Naval Submarine Base
Watermark provided overall design management; architecture; civil and geotechnical engineering; Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Administration; and construction management for the design-build of an indoor small arms range at the Naval Submarine Base in Groton, CT. The indoor small arms range building includes firing ranges; an armory; and administration and support spaces. The firing ranges provide specialized firearms qualification capabilities including known distance small arms qualification, tactical maneuvering training, and simulated scenario training. The armory provides secure storage areas for weapons and ammunition. The administration and support spaces include a classroom, offices, and an Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer room.
The project integrated sustainable design features and strategies into the design to minimize energy consumption using the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED®-NC program and earned a Gold rating.
