by | Mar 7, 2012 | Design Build, Projects

K-Con, Inc., headquartered in Charleston, SC, a provider of design-build construction for the military and federal government, recently completed a training facility for the Army National Guard at Camp Edwards, MA.

The 4,800 square foot steel structure with metal siding and roof was supplied and installed by K-Con to provide a facility to house two Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle trainers designed to protect military troops from mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Iraq.

“We consider ourselves privileged to be a part of the Guard’s training efforts, and take pride in giving it our best.” says Skip Reitmeier, K-Con Business Development Manager.

Aside from the MRAP facilities, K-Con has provided numerous training facility buildings for both the Air and Army National Guards across the country to protect and prepare our troops, including Egress Assistance Trainer (HEAT) buildings, a JCA-C-27 Operational Flight Simulator and C-27J Fuselage Trainer Facility, and even an Iraqi Search House.
