District of Columbia Department of Parks and Recreation


Rosedale Recreation Center Program Management

In 2009 the District of Columbia Department of Parks and Recreation, through the Office of Public Education Facilities Modernization, needed program management and project oversight services for the renovation of, and addition to, numerous community recreation centers, athletic fields, parks, and playgrounds. B&D was retained for these services, and the work was completed using the design-build delivery method. The Rosedale Recreation Center project included demolition of the existing recreation center and construction of a new one of approximately 26,200 SF. The facility will include a gymnasium, a weight room, educational/computer rooms, locker rooms, multipurpose rooms, a kitchen, and a senior room. Outdoor facilities will include a synthetic turf football field with a soccer overlay, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a playground. In addition, the project will have a new 5,000 SF library built on the site. The $19 million project was completed in 2012, while the playground opened in 2013. The project won a 2013 Associated Builders and Contractors (Chesapeake Shores Chapter) Excellence in Construction award.
