Security Forces Complex
Barksdale AFB - Bossier City, LA
The Security Complex Forces is a one story 46,446 SF facility consolidating base security functions into one facility at a location that is strategic to response and accessibility. The new Complex design compliments that of Barksdale’s AFB rich “French Colonial Revival” architectural tradition and its surrounding beauty and charm of large oak trees, pedestrian campus pathways and comfortable building scale. It follows the base’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and Design Compatibility Guidelines to match its surroundings while achieving LEED Silver Certification.
This facility houses administration, command and control center, guard mount, armory, vehicle work area, jail, mobility supply, training office and classrooms. In addition, several areas have high security requirements such as Jail, ECC/BDOC and Armory. These floors, walls and ceilings are constructed with special concrete reinforcement and security detection system. The building is constructed of structural steel and reinforced masonry and meets Force Protection requirements.
