The City of Woodbury and the City of Cottage Grove hired RJM Construction to oversee the new regional training facility for police, fire, and emergency medical services.
HERO Center provides one central location to bring all safety responders, both locally and regionally, together in a safe, state-of-the-art facility. The training center includes classrooms, a shooting range, canine training yard, a large vehicle maneuvering area for apparatus and extractions, virtual reality, and two mock house structures.
With the unique nature of this project, many aspects were new to RJM, Leo A Daly, and the contractors. The team remained agile throughout the entirety of the project as many of the items were adjusted along the way to ensure the facility would meet the training needs and withstand the various training scenarios.
