MN Air National Guard Composite Maintenance Facility

The 45,900 sf building is designed to accommodate up to 275 people in unit training assemblies in addition to its weekly staff of 45. Zones separate the major functional agencies in the building. However, each agency is fully integrated into the facility to promote optimum efficiency, communication and the sharing of common spaces. The aesthetic design form is a symbolic arch connecting the two main functional groups and defines a clear arrival point. The development of this form accomplished both functional and environment objectives.
