Client: Sewerage Agency of Southern Marin, Mill Valley
Role: Architect for Administration Building, Sub consultant to Prime Engineering Consultant, Carollo Engineers
Scope of Work: MTA was tasked to upgrade the outmoded 1981 era Administration Building and Laboratory at SASM, a public agency Waste Water Treatment Plant, in Mill Valley, California. There were four major areas of upgrade requested by the Agency, expand and reconfigure the laboratory, upgrade the accessibility, provide energy efficient lighting throughout and provide mechanical cooling. To accomplish these tasks, MTA is proposing a 1,000 square foot addition and remodel to the 4,300 square foot building. The existing building is fortress like, defined by berms and the dark metal roof. MTA recognized an opportunity to create a new, more welcoming, public face for the building by designing a lab which has large windows that both allow the users of the lab views out and natural light in while also permitting visitors to look into the operation of the new lab, reinforcing the public mission of the facility.
