New Barracks for National Guard Training Center
Farnsworth Group commissioned four new barracks facilities for the Mississippi National Guard’s Operational Readiness Training Complex (ORTC) at Camp Shelby near Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The ORTC serves both Army National Guard and Air National Guard units.
Camp Shelby is the largest state-owned military training facility in the nation and serves as a National Guard mobilization center for overseas deployment.
The work was divided into two separate projects of two barracks each, with each set nearly identical to the other. Each 49,356 SF building is four stories with 336 beds and associated support areas. Commissioned systems included mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and HVAC controls systems. The projects were LEED Silver certifiable.
