Straub’s second project with the Kansas Army National Guard, the Ft. Leavenworth Transient Barracks will provide soldiers training at the Mission Training Complex on base with overnight accommodations, ultimately saving the state of Kansas thousands of dollars.
12,500 people train at the MTC per year. Currently, when soldiers train at Ft. Leavenworth, they stay in offsite hotel rooms. This new 72,000 square foot facility will accommodate 540 soldiers, with sleeping arrangements for 10 soldiers per bay. Other facilities include laundry facilities and communal lounge spaces.
Designed and built to the same standards as LEED, the barracks feature geothermal heat, energy efficient lighting and more. The barracks are built with durable and long-lasting materials like precast concrete and burnished block, designed to stand the test of time.
We look forward to the Transient Barracks ribbon cutting ceremony and occupancy Summer 2020.
