Gary J. Arthur Community Center
North Point Builders was the Construction Manager for the Gary J. Arthur Community Center in Glenwood, Maryland. Located in Howard County, the facility is shared by the Departments of Recreation & Parks, Health, and Office on Aging. With the population of western Howard County growing, the county wanted to provide public services and recreation facilities for the multigenerational community.
The 50,000 square foot Community Center includes a gymnasium, recreation rooms, daycare center, senior and senior plus areas, multipurpose spaces, health and human resource spaces, kitchen, and a Howard County Police satellite office.
The building structure is steel, masonry and concrete. Brick, ground face block, built-up roof system, and storefront make up the building’s shell. Site work included demolition, grading, utilities, paving, curbs, sidewalks, benches, and over 40 acres of landscaping.
North Point Builders fulfilled sufficient sustainable design and procedure criteria to achieve the USGBC Silver LEED Certification. Several “green” standards that were implemented include:
- Limiting land disturbance
- Selecting renewable resource products
- Recycling on-site construction waste
- Upholding dust control and air quality standards
- Installing a “Well Farm” – a Geo-Thermal System
