Kentland Community Center
Location: Prince George's County, Maryland
Client: Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission
JMT provided construction management and commissioning services during the construction of a new community center.
The client needed to replace a small community center space that inadequately accommodated the needs of many local groups. A new $13-million, 32,000-SF facility includes an 8,600-SF gymnasium with bleacher seating, a 2,500-SF fitness center, and various other performance, meeting, recreational, and activity spaces, both inside and outside.
JMT’s full-time, facilities-CM staff provided construction management services, with commissioning services performed by a facilities-MEP team. The building was designed to LEED® Silver standards, using 240 solar modules, an 8,000-SF green roof, and six bioretention ponds to use resources efficiently and be environmentally responsible.
Other site improvements JMT oversaw included parking area regrading and expansion, and installation of two basketball courts with outdoor lighting.
The new community center provides a modern, spacious facility which will serve as a teen center, senior center, auditorium, computer lab, and athletics hub, as well as a venue for outdoor weddings.
