The new BMTC houses the latest generation of military training facilities, which are being progressively introduced across the island. This includes facilities such as a dedicated 5-storey block for each company, air-conditioned smart lecture rooms, elevators, air-conditioned gymnasiums, and a shooting range simulator. Co-located in the training ground are various training sheds of various sizes customised to fit platoons or entire companies. There are also rifle, grenade and Battle Inoculation Course ranges. In addition, there are sports facilities and supporting amenities such as a medical centre, canteens, auditoriums, an SAF E-Mart outlet, the Infantry Heritage Centre and Total Defence Museum.

All buildings in the Ladang complex are connected by sheltered walkways, and are linked to the ferry terminal for transportation to the main island. It is also easily accessible to pre-existing training facilities in the rest of the island, with the Tekong Highway just north of the training complex.

Located near to the ferry terminal is a statue known as the National Service Landmark, depicting a life-sized infantry soldier with the Singapore Armed Forces Flag, which was unveiled by Dr Tony Tan on the same day of the training centre's official opening.
