The project provides for the planning, design and construction of a new building to replace the Dennis Avenue Health Center located at 2000 Dennis Avenue, Silver Spring, Maryland. The new 53,432 gross square foot building is located on the existing site adjacent to the existing building.

The existing facility, which was built in the 1960s as an elementary school, is outdated, undersized in capacity, does not meet ADA standards, and is not configured to serve as a health center. Key building systems such as structural system, exterior walls, elevators, roof, HVAC and electrical system have surpassed their useful service life.

The new 53,432 gross square feet facility will provide all the program’s space requirements without loss of vital health services during construction.
