Multipurpose Machine Gun Range

US Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville

Fort Hunter Liggett, CA

Fort Hunter-Liggett Combat Support Training Center provides training base operations support at four Installations enabling world-class combat support/combat services support training, while providing for the well-being and security of soldiers, family members and civilians. A pre-design planning charrette for the new range was held with the user community.

Mason & Hanger collaborated closely with Fort Hunter Liggett Range Control and the Army Reserve and provided full design for the new machine gun range. This facility trains and tests soldiers on the skills necessary to detect, identify, engage and defeat stationary and moving infantry targets in a tactical array. This range satisfies the training and qualification requirements of light and heavy machine gunnery. In addition to the firing lanes, the design included a range operations and control area, tower renovation and relocation, and operations and storage building, a classroom building, covered mess, ammunition breakdown building, and building information systems.
