Platt/Whitelaw Architects designed the new facility to include offices, conference rooms, training facilities, plant control center, laboratories, employee lounge and lunch areas, shower/locker rooms, workshops and tool storage areas. The 22,305 sf three-story facility has extraordinary ocean views to the west while nestling into the site topography. Art and interior flooring displays depict historical references to the importance of wastewater treatment. An interactive audio/visual kiosk provides public introduction to the plant process. Site improvements include parking, service access, exterior decks, patios and landscaping.
