The Operational Readiness Training Complex (ORTC) Army Standard Design defines functional/operational requirements for brigade and battalion level transient training and mobilization/demobilization activities. The ORTC SD provides parameters for basic, austere but durable facilities to accommodate the following transient training functions:
Admin for Battalion level activities
Billeting (open bay barracks and officer quarters)
Admin and supply for Company level activities
Vehicle Maintenance Shop (organizational vehicle and equipment maintenance with temporary warehouse storage)
Admin for Brigade level activities
The ORTC SD applies to Active, Reserve and National Guard Component facilities on Army Installations, with the exception of facilities intended for permanent party (non-transient) soldiers, Initial Entry Training, Advanced Individual Training, or Warrior Transition Units, which are addressed by separate Standard Designs. Transient training facilities are intended for up to 90 day training periods.
