Mason contractor: The Henson Company
Architect: Indra Jain
Owner: Alderwood Water & Wastewater District
General contractor: Apollo Inc.
Due to the proximity of the treatment plant to the residential community and Waterfront Park, design of the buildings and related treatment plant facilities was critical to the neighborhood.
After consulting with water district personnel, the designers chose non-trendy, long-lasting materials, colors and textures to meet the plant’s 50-year lifespan, stay within budget and appeal to the neighbors.
A masonry screen wall and native landscaping provides security and softens the street picture. The selection of concrete foam masonry units saved 12 inches in the building width, providing more space for process equipment and a one-way service road around the process facilities.
