Washington Army National completes $15 million Guard Readiness Center

The Washington Army National Guard has completed a $15 million, 40,000-square-foot readiness center at Horn Rapids Industrial Park to serve a 150-member Stryker Infantry Unit.

The Tri-Cities Readiness Center includes classrooms and conference rooms available to the public.

The guard recognized the need for a new facility in the Tri-Cities in 2011 and began working to secure a site and funding. The Richland project was approved for funding in 2012, with the cost split 75%-25% between the U.S. and state governments.

The city of Richland sold it the site in 2017 for $1.7 million, and the Washington Legislature approved its share in of the cost 2019.

It is expected to serve as home base for a Stryker unit associated with the National Guard’s 81st Brigade Combat Team, with members traveling to Richland to fulfill their Guard commitments.

Richland-based Fowler General Construction Inc. was the design-build contractor.
