Using solar collectors and a geothermal system for a resilient design
When Park City, Utah wanted to unite their public operations and maintenance facility with a water treatment plant, they engaged us to help. To tie the two sites together, the new Park City Department of Public Utilities Operations and Maintenance Facility would be located on land strategically located across the highway from the Quinns Junction water treatment plant.
Our design for the combined facility places administrative and customer service portions on the east side of the site, closer to the road for easier access. Creating a south-facing linear building allows us to take advantage of passive and active solar energy systems with a design that will help with transitioning to the City’s net zero goals. Photovoltaic (PV) panels offset electricity consumption and a transpired solar collector walls system heats up incoming air through convection. The campus includes administration, operations, heated vehicle storage, vehicle circulation, shop and repair bay spaces, and equipment and material storage structures. Shops and vehicle storage on the west side of the site keep everyday work activities away from a busy highway.
Our sustainable facility design would help Park City meet their net zero carbon emissions initiative and keep the community in mind.
