This is a new 33,000-square-foot recreation center for the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Although not a LEED project, many sustainable features, such as daylighting, green and vegetative roofing systems, photovoltaics, natural light walls, bioswales, and drainage trenches, are used. The project includes a gym with three basketball courts (including an NCAA regulation court), a teen room with tech features, a fitness center, various meeting rooms, a computer lab, a media studio, and a child daycare center. The project also features a performing arts room for use by community theater and dance companies.
*Derrick Adams was the PM of this project when he initiated with FWA and completed it as the executive architect of the ADG.
