The NYS Preparedness Training Center (SPTC), located in Central NY at the former Oneida County Airport, is a multidiscipline complex operated by the NYS Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Services (DHSES). The facility occupies 723 fenced acres of the former Airport and is undergoing $42 million in capital projects geared toward making it a national model for training first responders.

Tectonic was retained by BBS Architects under contract to NYS Office of General Services (OGS) to develop designs (site/civil engineering, stormwater management), secure permits (SPDES, NYSOPRHP filings, environmental compliance), and support the procurement & construction phases for this Training Complex for the addition of a 100-yard range, shoot house/kneewall structure, office/classroom facilities, range support/equipment buildings with bullet trap/recovery, and shade/instructional pavilions.

Soil testing/groundwater investigation data and best practices were utilized to optimize stormwater management facility location, confirm borrow pit viability for an earthen backstop, and manage lead associated with ammunition.
