Opus Chosen by Army National Guard for a Third Project: Readiness Center in Davenport

​When they needed to replace outdated facilities, the Iowa National Guard turned to Opus to design and construct its third project for the Army National Guard. 

Located on 37 acres of land in Davenport, the 87,000-square-foot Readiness Center will accommodate soldiers completing weekend trainings and for minimal occupancy throughout the week. The one-story, stand-alone facility will include a drill hall, offices, classrooms, a kitchen, a physical fitness center and vehicle work bays. The building was designed by Opus to meet anti-terrorism and force protection requirements, such as blast-resistant windows and considerations for standoff distances. 

As a fully-integrated company with architecture and construction experts under one roof, Opus is able to offer exceptional value to clients, ultimately leading to repeat clients like the Army National Guard.

Opus will begin construction in April 2018 with completion in April 2019.
