New Buildings for Modernized Plant
New Spring Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant
Practicality. Functionality. Sustainability. Those were three of the overriding goals that the Sangamon County Water Reclamation District set forth for the architecture and civil/site design that would support the state-of-the-art Spring Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The expanded facilities required the design and construction of 12 buildings covering over 100,000 square feet of space for administrative and operational functions. Buildings included an administration and lab building, an operations/disinfection building, a screen building, a pump building, two electrical buildings, a drum screen building, two mixing buildings, a boiler building, a sludge dewatering building and a vehicle maintenance building. Crawford, Murphy & Tilly (CMT) designed the buildings in combination with the wastewater process design. The new modern facilities were a significant upgrade from the 1920 era buildings that housed administrative and operational functions. Buildings were designed to be sustainable and low-maintenance. All buildings were designed with a consistent standard of insulated precast concrete walls and standing seam metal roofs to achieve the client’s goal of a long service life. The Operations/Disinfection building has a green roof to promote energy efficiency. An underground tunnel was designed to provide all-weather vehicular access between key process areas and buildings.
