Law Enforcement Gun Range Services
Now in our 20th year in business, MT2 Firing Range Services is a recent Inc. 5,000 fastest growing company and is the ONLY contractor who is the premier all-in-one solution for firing range lead maintenance and reclamation who also provides the fully integrated combination of design and build construction services.
A law enforcement executive overseeing the renovation or construction of a public safety facility or firing range is likely to be new to the process, due to the long lifespan of a properly constructed building. The International Association of Chiefs of Police developed Police Facilities Planning Guidelines to empower law enforcement executives to make informed decisions when planning the construction of a new facility.
The guidelines in the article list four key phases of the process for any renovation, expansion, or construction and design of a public safety facility:
1. Building Support for the Project
2. Pre-Planning and Analysis
3. Project Design and Delivery
4. Project Construction and Occupancy
“Whether a range owner desires a simple cleaning and lead reclamation or a full-scale project and construction management for upgrade, renovation, or new build or anything in between, they have access to a single integrated best-value provider,” said MT2 President and CEO James M. Barthel. Every law enforcement agency needs a home base to conduct daily operations, trainings, and meetings as well as space for evidence and equipment.
The IACP has provided guidelines to aid the decision-making process when planning a new facility, and many specialized firms are ready to make an agency’s vision into a reality.
