South Bay Water Reclamation Plant

Project Type
Water Reclamation Plant
Parsons Engineering for the City of San Diego
San Diego, CA

PWA was retained to design the Operations Building (11,340 sf), the Maintenance Building (8,670 sf), and the Chemical Storage Building (12,821 sf) as well as process buildings and structures for the new water reclamation plant. The buildings are designed to conserve energy through material choices, site orientation, daylighting, shading devices and building mass. A public tour was integrated into the plant design and educates the public about the importance of water conservation, without interfering with plant operations.
