CH2M HILL

These three facilities store and supply carbon to aid in the removal of nitrogen from wastewater in order to improve the water quality of the East River, Jamaica Bay, and Long Island Sound. Employing a kit-of-parts, the design provides a consistent aesthetic palette that is customized to respond to the unique conditions and context of each site. The stainless steel storage tanks are set within a painted steel framework and wrapped with screens that double as racks for loose pipes. The tanks are flanked by a corrugated metal enclosure that houses pumps and an electrical room. At night the structures are lit with blue LEDs, lending these critical pieces of infrastructure an ethereal quality.
