Greenbelt Middle School

Location: Greenbelt, Maryland Client: Prince George's County Public Schools

JMT provided construction management services for a new LEED® Gold certified school. 

Greenbelt Middle School is a design-bid-build project of a LEED® Gold certified education facility. Designed to accommodate 990 sixth through eighth grade students, this new 143,277 sf building provided a 30% increase in capacity compared to the existing school, which was built in 1937.  JMT's full time, field-based Construction Manager oversaw the construction, commissioning and occupancy phases of the project.

The two-story school includes a centrally located media center, multiple interactive computer labs, a television production studio, band and choir rooms, science labs, gymnasium, cafeteria, a language learning center, and classrooms for technology, art, special education, and family and consumer science.

The building boasts many sustainable features, beginning with its steel frame structure with masonry shear walls supported on spread footings. The façade is constructed of masonry cavity walls with a running bond brick veneer that includes a combination of operable and fixed aluminum-clad ribbon windows, faux canopies and scuppers to drain water away from the built-up, low albedo, membrane roof system. The building plant uses a geothermal system that pumps water through geothermal wells and uses water source heat pumps to draw heating or cooling from the geothermal water. The central building automation system is state-of-the-art and can be monitored and controlled remotely.

Site improvements include a bio-retention pond, landscaping, retaining walls and new playing fields including soccer, baseball and softball. Off-site improvements include sidewalks along the property frontage and the installation of speed humps, signage, crosswalks and striping.

JMT received a Construction Management Association of America Baltimore Chapter Project Achievement Award for exceptional performance and dedication to our client.
