About this Project
In the heart of the Tempe Campus, Sherwood is the civil engineer-of-record for site and infrastructure design for a new signature laboratory building. Our design is focused on an integrated water systems. We are leveraging the on-site and off-site opportunities, regional drivers of water scarcity and historic water infrastructure to create a regenerative design that is both educational and experiential. Sherwood is bringing our extensive experience with landscape based, low impact development techniques for stormwater management and water reuse. We are evaluating an array of options for multi-scalar building and site integrated water conservation, water capture, onsite treatment and reuse. These options include assessment of the building and its integrated design with the landscape including the occupied space, and building envelope and rooftop. The University and the design team are working through a fully collaborative process that will deliver on the vision that will shift the paradigm for building and environmental performance.
