The Luverne Readiness Center will serve up to 110 National Guard soldiers on training weekends and host public events throughout the year. The facility includes a large assembly hall that will support National Guard activities and community functions. Other spaces include offices, classrooms, learning center, exercise room, locker rooms, commercial kitchen, equipment storage, arms vault, and high-bay vehicle maintenance bays. The facility has a functional floor plan, durable interior finishes, an energy-efficient mechanical system, LED lighting with occupancy/vacancy controls, vehicle lots, and on-site photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy generation. Due to the site’s openness, the landscape design is highly functional. Wind-row plantings will block prevailing winter winds and screen views to adjacent industrial uses. The natural stream and wetland system along the edges of the site will be preserved and stormwater designed to mitigate any post-development run-off. Overall, the facility and site design are aimed at meeting functional needs while having low long-term maintenance and operating costs.
