Reeves Young was chosen as the builder for The Water Tower, a 55,600 SF water innovation and research facility including office and collaboration space, classrooms and meeting spaces, 250-seat multi-purpose space and multiple laboratories. The campus, which is part of the F. Wayne Hill facility and the Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center, will also feature active public spaces including a greenway and trails, as well as a Dirt Training Center.
Reeves Young was selected as the Program Manager for this expedited design-build project. Designed specifically for the Phillip Morris USA facility, The WaterHub reduces consumed water by 40% and eliminates 55% of wastewater discharge. Major equipment installation included influent pumps, rotary bar screen, odor control system, EQ/tank/pumps, fine screen, weir gates, membrane system, UV System, RO system, fiberglass reclaim tank with reclaim pumps, and a greenhouse. The overall plant capacity is 710,000 GPM expandable to 1.5 MGD.
Reeves Young was chosen as the builder for The WaterHub, an on-site water recycling system on the Emory University campus which utilizes eco-engineering processes to clean wastewater for future non-potable uses. It is the first system of its kind to be installed in the United States, and is capable of recycling up to 400,000 gallons-per-day – nearly 40% of Emory’s total campus water needs. The cleaned water is then used as process make-up water in Emory’s steam and chiller plants and toilet flushing in select residence halls. The system was built to reduce Emory’s draw of water from Atlanta’s municipal water supply by up to 146 million gallons of water annually. It also includes a 50,000 gallon emergency water reserve which will allow Emory’s heating and cooling systems to function for an average of seven hours in the event of any disruption in water availability.
