URBAN ASSAULT COURSE TRAINING FACILITY (UAC)
Florida Army National Guard
72,000-acre - Five Training Stations
GM HILL provided Structural Engineering services for the design of 18 new building structures. In addition to the engineering aspects of the project, staff from G.M. Hill provided architecture and QA/QC for the project.
As part of the comprehensive redevelopment of the Camp Blanding Joint Training Center, design & construction documents for the Urban Assault Course (UAC) at Camp Blanding, FL were developed. The UAC is located adjacent to the Live Fire Shoot House (LFSH), and the Combined Arms Collective Training Facility (CACTF), GM HILL also provided structural engineering services for that project as well.
This UAC design project provides a standard range with 5 training stations following the most recent Corp of Engineers Engineering and Support Center- Huntsville’s standard range layout dated May 2010. The Range Operations and Control Area (ROCA) includes the following standard facilities for a UAC: Operations / Storage Building, Covered Mess, Bleacher Enclosure, Ammunition Breakdown Building, Bleachers, Covered Mess and Wet Latrine.
The Urban Assault Course (UAC) is used to train individual soldiers, squads, and platoons on tasks necessary to operate within a built-up/urban area. It provides squad or platoon-size units with a facility to train and evaluate urban operations tasks. With the exception of Station 3, Grenadier Gunnery, the UAC is not intended for live-fire training. Station 3, Grenadier Gunnery Trainer, is designed to support 40-mm TP and 5.56-mm service ammunition.
