Westphalia Community Center
The Westphalia Community Center is a new one-story 16,800 SF prefabricated metal building for a recreational sports facility on an existing park property in an emerging community in Prince George’s County. The community center features multi-use gathering spaces including a basketball court, weight and fitness room, two multi-purpose rooms for dance classes and other services, a teen lounge, and warming pantry.
The surrounding site features an outdoor basketball court, tennis courts, baseball field, and playground with a large patio that connects to the front entry of the center. The new construction involved extensive earthwork including utility modifications to prepare for the building pad, site work including slope re-gradation to bio-ponds and new concrete walkways. Work also included the expansion of the parking lot and storm water modifications.
The center was constructed to LEED Silver standards with the inclusion of daylighting, recycled materials, and zero-irrigation landscaping.
