Kentlands Community Center

As one of the first MN-CPPC BIM-designed projects, the Kentland Community Center will be the centerpiece of the community park in Landover.  The building, 32,000 square feet in size, is designed to be LEED Silver equivalent or greater.  Comprised of exposed steel, ACM panels, brick and natural stone veneer on the exterior, the building’s interior will include daylight harvesting, active and passive solar design, water efficient fixtures, energy efficient HVAC and lighting systems and life-cycle costing with durability of materials.  The site is smartly designed with a wedding court separating the new building from the existing community building and circular drives allow pick-up and drop-off points at each building.  Ample parking and handicap accessibility address the concerns of the neighborhood, with upgraded site utilities, basketball and tennis courts.  The design was completed utilizing Revit 2009, allowing M-NCPPC to visualize the building in 3D throughout the design process.

Cecil County Courthouse

After an unsatisfactory evaluation from the National Center for State Courts, FWA teamed with the Center to expand and renovate the Cecil County Courthouse. The expansion consisted of the addition of an elevator to transport prisoners from their travel vehicles directly to the prisoner waiting area and adding square footage to the entrance lobby to upgrade security, improve ADA accessibility and alleviate back-ups in security lines. The marriage license/ wedding chapel office, the civil office and the land records and criminal records office were reconfigured to provide better workflow and visibility. The project was fast-tracked with a construction manager, Turner Construction, working with the owners’ representative, Aramark.

Reckord Armory / Frederick Y Ward Park

The Frederick Ward Park at the Reckord Armory is clearly our favorite project and its design exemplifies FWA’s commitment to community.  The Reckord Armory, located in downtown Bel Air, serves as a hub for concerts and community events.  The Frederick Ward Park was added to the Armory complex in 2009 to provide a supplemental outdoor venue for local gatherings.  FWA’s architects and landscaping design team created a first class space for all to enjoy and IMARK builders constructed the project.

JLENS-Rendering-Final

Carroll Island Wetland Mitigation

FWA relocated wetland areas to compensate for existing wetland areas being disturbed as part of the U.S. Army’s JLENS surveillance project within the Edgewood section of APG. Two distinct areas will be excavated into shallow depressions that will bring the land surface down to the average water table level of the area. These depressions will be graded into various elevations to replicate three different wetland zones:  emergent, shrub/scrub and forested. The plantings will be maintained in perpetuity and are expected to propagate and thrive on their own.
