The Army National Guard needed to assess the readiness centers and Armed Forces Reserve Centers in six states. Mead & Hunt evaluated how each state’s facilities and long-range plans supported the vision and objectives of the state leadership. Our team analyzed statewide demographics using business analyses to evaluate demographic shifts and current facility locations. This included evaluating the population around the facilities to assess the viability of these facilities in the face of demographic change. The analyses often determined that the location of existing readiness centers did not coincide with future population centers and the state chose to divest those facilities in favor of new facilities.
The result of the Readiness Center Transformation Master Plan was a future development plan that met the needs of existing soldiers while balancing the long-term future of potential recruitment.
