This Readiness Centers Design Guide (DG 415-1) contains design and functional planning guidance information for the design architect-engineer (A-E) to use in developing the design and the construction contract documents for Army National Guard (ARNG) readiness centers projects that qualify for support, totally or in part, from Federal funds. Readiness centers projects include Readiness Centers (Armory), Civil Support Team/Weapons of Mass Destruction (CST-WMD)-Ready Buildings, and joint use Armed Forces Reserve Centers (AFRC). This design guide is applicable to all construction projects, including new construction, major alterations, rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of existing facilities. All ARNG facilities must be designed and constructed using the principles and practices of sustainable design and development using the latest version of the U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System to achieve a “Silver” rating. DG 415-1 addresses the unique functional design requirements for specific types of buildings. It should be used in conjunction with the General Facilities Information Design Guide (DG 415-5), which contains technical design guidance common to all Army National Guard building types. Together, the two design guides provide the functional performance information necessary to assist in developing the facility design.
