Prince George’s Co., MD

40,000 SF

Completed 2015


The Palmer Park Community Center, which is located on a 44-acre park site, is a 22,000-SF building that offers a variety of indoor and outdoor recreational facilities.  Carroll Engineering provided civil and structural designs for the renovation of the existing building and construction of an 18,000-SF addition.     

Located within the 100-year floodplain, the Palmer Park project presented a number of civil challenges. Carroll Engineering located the addition footprint in order to satisfy zoning setbacks and minimize the impact on the floodplain area.  CEI also completed a floodplain study and met with Prince George’s County for review.  Stormwater management designs included a 2,300-SF bio-retention area and a stone trench for recharge located beneath the bio-retention area.  In addition, our civil team provided designs for a 6-inch water service with a WSSC building installation permit.  

Structurally, the existing Palmer Park Center is a one-story, steel framed structure with exterior load-bearing masonry walls.  CEI designed the addition to consist of similar structural systems.  To raise the finish floor elevation above the floodplain, CEI recommended concrete piers and a poured-in-place concrete floor.  Structural designs also included a green roof, front entrance canopy, and an elevated running track.  All structural designs were completed using REVIT.
