The Site Stormwater Concept Design for the Tucker Road Ice Rink has been approved by the Prince George’s County Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement. Work during the Design Development Phase continues. In July, staff worked with the design team to review and evaluate design options for the exterior envelope of the building. In addition, the design team provided a number of materials and finish options for consideration of the interior design. Staff reviewed and evaluated the options presented, including revised layout of the lobby, reception and café areas. Staff is currently providing input to the design team regarding operational needs and maintenance considerations as well as suggestions for user comfort.
Next steps in the Design Development Phase consist of a series of internal technical meetings as follows:
- Ice systems design
- Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing design
- Site/Landscaping design
- Kitchen equipment
- Security/Communications design
- International Green Construction Code Sustainable Design credits
Forrester Construction, the Construction Manager at Risk, continues to refine the project schedule based on work efforts to date. Upcoming communications will share the team’s progress on the design and schedule.
