Renewable Water Resources Water Discovery Lab

Scope

  • The facility serves as the primary lab for the majority of ReWa’s water quality testing. Project scope included a renovation resulting in a new lab building consisting of 15 labs, as well as office and conference space

Highlights

  • Interior finishes include floor-to-ceiling windows and wood ceilings. Polished concrete floors, called a “Riverwalk”, begin in the lobby and are carried throughout the conference room area, made of an epoxy concrete with various colors of glass mixed in

  • The labs located in the center of the building were designed to allow school classes the ability to walk through and watch various machines in action

  • The front of the building features a pavilion with benches to accommodate classes and large groups for lunches and speakers

  • The exterior facade is made up of a metal wall panel system as well as a natural stone called Doggett Mountain Stone, extracted from Doggett Mountain in North Carolina

  • The site is an abandoned former water resource recovery facility that offered opportunities for community revitalization and environmental education and visibility. The lab was built on three sewage treatment tanks, using grade beams that span the tops of the tanks tied into a structural slab placed on top
