- About Us
The United States Air Force has safety and security protocols for people visiting Melrose Air Force Range where it trains airmen and soldiers in integrated combat scenarios and electronic combat. When someone enters the range, they must be checked in and receive eye protection, electronic trackers and a safety briefing.
The Air Force required a check-in facility large enough to handle large groups, computers and staff. The facility also had to be mobile to facilitate a future change in the gated entry point.
With a combined square-footage of 640 square-feet, two 40-foot shipping containers placed side by side is the perfect size for two check-in desks, gear storage, and a briefing-waiting area. To create the large open space, we removed a side wall from each of two 40-foot containers. When pushed together, the containers create a clear-span area supported by columns in the center of the room. The open space also allowed for required mechanical and communications rooms inside the structure.
