National Center for Explosives launches research and learning facility

October 11, 2011 |

The National Center for Explosives Training and Research at Redstone Arsenal in Hunstville, Ala., is the nation’s foremost explosives and forensic training, research, and knowledge center. Designed by VOA Associates, the center encompasses 81,500 sf at a cost of $27 million.

The primary design goal was to provide secure access and facilities to establish a high-quality learning environment. A first-floor classroom resembles a courtroom to train personnel for evidence presentations, while indoor forensic labs house state-of-the-art technology and equipment. The building’s outer design complements surrounding facilities, echoing the corporate appearance of the campus.
