Size & Type of Project
In November 2000, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center acquired the 247 acre Naval Communications Detachment site in Cheltenham, Maryland for use as a firearms and vehicle re-qualification site for Federal Agencies. The complex includes 61 structures comprising approximately 484,000 gross framed square feet. The site itself has historic importance, as it was here that Navy personnel intercepted the fateful “Winds Execute” message to the Japanese Embassy on December 4, 1941 that indicated Japan would soon break diplomatic relations. It was also here that the first news of the attack on Pearl Harbor was received in Washington.
The centerpiece of the site conversion and modernization was the construction of a new 153,226 SF indoor firing range constructed at a cost of $20 Million. The range has 108 points plus classroom training and conference areas. Construction began in July 2002 and was completed in December 2003.
