To accommodate increased demands and better meet facility needs the parking lots at the Bloomington National Guard Armory required major improvements. The Department of Military Affairs selected TKDA to reconstruct the Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) parking lot and the Military Vehicle Storage Compound (MVSC).
TKDA improved the POV with approximately 10,000 SY of light duty and heavy duty bituminous surfacing. Improvements to the MVSC included approximately 3,000 SY of 8-inch thick reinforced concrete paving. New 7-foot high security fencing with anti-climb provisions was specified around the MVSC, including one single and two double swing gates. TKDA provided security lighting with LED energy efficient fixtures for both the POV and MVSC lots. To reduce costs during off-peak hours TKDA implemented reduced lighting levels utilizing motion detectors for full illumination.
