Olde Towne Youth Center

Gaithersburg, MD

The structure was built from perimeter and interior dimensional lumber framed partitions, glu-lam roof trusses with structural insulated panels. The façade has decorative CMU and Phenolic Rainscreen Wall Panels. The roof system consists of a combination of TPO membrane and standing seam metal with vegetative areas. Finishes combine painted drywall partitions, recycled rubber sheet flooring, recycled glass tile flooring, bamboo millwork, and ACT and exposed ceilings. A geothermal ground-source heat pump system was utilized along with photovoltaic roof panels and daylight sensor interior light ballast. Design to be LEED Silver, this magnificent project achieved LEED Platinum Certification.
