Having served as the architectural consultant on the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s River Mountains Water Treatment and Transmission Facility, LGA was invited by builders Carollo, Black & Veatch to again be a consultant in the programming and design of this 52,000 s.f. laboratory and research facility.
Located directly north of the Operations and Maintenance building at the River Mountains site, this project provides space for the regulatory compliance lab relocated from another SNWA site, as well as lab and pilot plant space for the Research and Development Group
The facility accommodates existing personnel and functions, but also provides for future growth. As a secondary objective, the building is integrated into the site’s existing interpretive path to further support the SNWA’s public outreach/community relations efforts.
The public walking tour provides information on the work being performed within the building, focusing on microbiology, chemistry, research and development aspects of SNWA’s efforts to ensure safe drinking water for the public.
