Subterranean Warfare Complex, Muscatatuck Urban Training Center

Butlerville, Indiana

This award-winning project involved the design of 1,100 lft of lifelike underground caverns across 1.3 acres to prepare soldiers to fight in confined underground scenarios. The design simulates ambush locations, command bunkers, confined tunnels, and escape tunnels, all while using an unexpected, pitch-black labyrinth environment. The project used a design/build delivery in order to minimize cost and expedite the schedule. This project was completed in 72 work days and adds a myriad of training options to public and private entities, including the Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force, FBI, firefighters, emergency medical personnel, and more.
