Over the past few years the Paso Robles Police Department and the Cal Poly Construction Management Department have developed a professional relationship. Paso PD, looking for a cost-efficient solution to upgrading their shooting range decided to partner with Cal Poly students looking to gain field experience and complete their senior project. This shooting range, starting as just a few targets in an open area, has been developed into a 24-hour usable training facility equipped with storage, water, and electricity. As part of the department’s requested scope, two gun cleaning counters as well as a roof extension to protect these counters were required. After an initial site visit, the general requirements were outlined. The first step included developing an appropriate design within the means of the budget. The design process involved regular meetings with the project SME and owner to ensure that the project met required specifications. Once Complete, the construction process began including material procurement, site preparation, and installation. Throughout the course of the project, scheduling and conducting professional meetings with both design professionals and owners of the project, creating an appropriate budget and design, procuring funds, and project closeout were all required skills to learn.
