The 87,000 square foot training center will offer the latest in training and administrative support resources to include classrooms, a learning center, library, storage cages and a weapons simulator.

The project will be certified LEED Silver, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, allowing the Army Reserve to reduce its impact on the environment while at the same time saving taxpayer money.

The $20 million project, which was awarded to Boro Construction of Marlton, represents the next step toward ensuring that America’s Army Reserve remain the most capable, combat-ready and lethal federal reserve force in the history of the nation.
