Tactical Design North and it staff worked with the Municipality of Anchorage to deliver a national level fire training asset in the State of Alaska. This facility was conceptualized to answer the training needs of a department that has an 8 hour drive to the next nearest training center. TDN worked to provide the business plan, master plan for 5 different sites, design criteria, training design, and owners rep services throughout the 6 year process. The new Classroom, Highbay, and Tech/Fire Rescue tower combine into one contiguous building allowing fl exible use and highly efficient movement between clean and dirty training functions. The high bay serves as the connecting knuckle between clean and dirty training spaces. The space also serves as a muster point during the city’s emergency operations, and is directly adjacent to Merrill Field and operating airport. The site was also rebuilt and renovated to allow future outdoor fire training props to be incorporated into the facility and allow future phased build out.
