Carlsbad Joint First Responders Training Facility

The City of Carlsbad hired RRM Design Group to conduct a site assessment and feasibility study evaluating two City-owned properties for a new Police Shooting Range, Fire Training Center, and Public Works Center. RRM generated three Site Concept Alternatives with an associated pros/cons listing and Statements of Probable Construction Costs. The police shooting range component included 25 shooting lanes of various lengths, a classroom, a Fire Arms Training Simulator (FATS) room, and associated support spaces. The Fire Training Center components included a four-story training building with multiple live fire and static drill props, a two-story residential structure with live fire props, an outdoor classroom pavilion with storage/support spaces, outdoor training prop areas and a rodeo-style driving area for police and fire apparatus maneuvers, and a fire administration/classroom facility.
