The new Massachusetts Readiness Center in Natick will be located on a 26 acre state-owned parcel located at 149 Speen Street, to provide a training center for and serve the peacetime missions of the 182nd Area Support Medical Company and the 26th Maneuver Enhanced Brigade units of the Massachusetts Army National Guard (MAARNG).
The new Readiness Center consists of a 2-story assembly hall in a two-level arrangement that locates spaces requiring public access on the first level and the other spaces, i.e., offices, classrooms and the Command Suite on the second level.
Energy conserving features designed to accommodate the Readiness Center’s unique monthly cycle have been incorporated into the design and a LEED Plus Silver rating is anticipated.
Site design will meet all required federal security and Force Protection standards. The site work will include storm water management systems.
