South Dakota Army National Guard Building 802
Rapid City, SD
59,799 sf facility that incorporates living quarters, classrooms, offices, and support spaces for National Guard personnel
TSP has a long history of providing services at Camp Rapid. Building 802, which comprises a 250-soldier barracks as well as classroom/training spaces, is one of a trio that TSP designed in succession for SD ARNG at this site. Together, these three buildings consolidate all billeting requirements for Camp Rapid.
Building 802 incorporates full Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection guidelines. (Building 803 houses additional barracks, dining to serve 450 at a time, classroom/training, arms vault, and administrative offices in a facility that also adheres to AT/FP guidelines; Building 801 is primarily offices and support functions.)
Building 802 includes nearly 60,000 sf on three stories, with learning spaces to accommodate a variety of needs. It features an auditorium with fixed seating, a distributive learning center, and open classrooms with movable partitions. A combination of billeting areas and semi-private rooms with laundry, toilets, and a physical fitness areas occupy the top two floors. The facility also includes battalion headquarter and supply spaces, an arms vault, and company supply.
IT throughout the building supports secure and non-secure telecommunications. The design uses a geothermal well field and water-to-air heat pump systems for heating and cooling.
