Responding to a complex program of space needs with military standards and requirements, the CSMS facility meets the challenge of creating a humanized, ordered, and efficient work environment for the maintenance of heavy military equipment.
Working with diverse user groups, each with specialized maintenance duties, TCF navigated the complex National Guard Bureau’s design standards to develop a distinctive campus to serve our military for the next 50 plus years. The 4-building facility, with LEED Silver Certification, houses over 100 military and civilian staff who maintain military vehicles and an array of specialty military equipment for the Washington State Army National Guard (WAANG). The main building, constructed primarily of steel and CMU, is configured as a double-T form supporting; administrative and staff program spaces, specialty workshops, a supply warehouse, a gun range, and more. Flanking high bay wings intersect the main building mass accommodating heavy maintenance bays. The 27-acre campus also incorporates two open canopy structures for; the firefinder radar vehicle, equipment washing, parking and containment for fueling trucks, and two enclosed structures for controlled waste/hazardous material storage.
