US-based Haskell Company has completed a new $23m Armed Forces Reserve Center in Muskogee, Oklahoma, which will be unveiled on 4 February 2011.
The 9,012m² reserve centre includes training areas, a drill floor, arms vaults, administrative areas, a kitchen and classrooms.
Housing more than 450 national guard members and army reserve soldiers, the centre has been designed to evoke the historical armories of the early 1800s and the Oklahoma armories built in the 1930s.
The focal point of the design-build facility is the 697m² drill hall, which features a 22ft-eave-height barrel-vaulted roof.
The centre will also be designated as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver-certified project by the US Green Building Council, according to citybiz.
