Tucker Road Ice Rink Featured in Metal Construction News


Forrester Construction's Tucker Road Ice Rink Project - Fort Washington Maryland

Tucker Road Ice Rink replaced a community center damaged by fire. A metal building system, metal roof and metal walls were specified, in part, to meet durability and cost requirements.

Brian Walbridge, RA, associate at Grimm + Parker Architects, says, “Inspired by the nearby Henson Creek, named after explorer Matthew Henson, the first African American to explore the Arctic, the project plays with the concepts of ice, the arctic, and the northern lights. The sleek metal panel and glass exterior of the building recall the sloping planes of icebergs, glaciers and mountains, while the lighting both inside and out recall the vibrant colors of sunrises and the northern lights.”
