With innovative design approaches for mechanical systems and water efficiencies, the Nine Springs Wastewater Treatment Plant maintenance facility has been LEED® Platinum certified.
This facility sits on the existing Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District campus and provides a professional, public presence while integrating into the existing campus. The building serves as a base for employees who keep the maintenance facility up and running every day and includes a garage, workshops, offices, lockers, and a training room.
The building is equipped with a number of sustainable features including: a green roof, photovoltaic panels, high-performance LED lighting and task lighting, occupancy and daylight sensors, low-consumption plumbing fixtures, access to alternative transportation, on-site storm water infiltration, drought tolerant native species, and pervious pavement.
A unique element of this facility is the highly sustainable “sewer thermal” system that uses treated waste water produced by the facility for its heating and cooling systems.
The new design helps to contribute to the prosperous, healthy and sustainable community that surrounds the facility, and our team partnered with building owners to ensure that the design reflected the aesthetic of the surrounding campus and community.
