The District of Sechelt asked us to help design-build a new wastewater treatment facility that would “set the standard in the region” for innovation and energy efficiency. This is the first North American installation of the “Organica Fed Batch Reactor (FBR) System” which is well known in Europe and Asia. The facility, designed to achieve LEED Gold, will be a regional training centre and welcome the public to learn about water and water-related issues. We approach wastewater as a resource with a broad spectrum of potential uses.
The Water Resource Center took two years to build and is now complete. It meets LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold accreditation and uses an interesting process from Europe where part of the biological treatment is provided by microorganisms fixed to the roots of plants that are grown in a greenhouse that sits above the fed-batch reactors.
