Nanaimo’s South Fork Water Treatment Plant is the largest, siphon-powered, membrane filtration plant in North America. The innovative use of siphon, rather than pumps, reduces the building footprint, and saves capital, operating and maintenance costs. Employing a two-stage membrane filtration system increases treatment efficiency to more than 98%.
Blackadore Caye hopes to raise critical awareness for global issues, such as climate change, ocean acidification, and habitat loss. T he project will set new standards in leading green technologies and restoration strategies with a key objective of the resort being Net Zero Energy, Net Zero Water, and Net Zero Waste.
Associated practices a collaborative design process. We use an integrated, synergistic approach, considering all phases of the overall project life-cycle, aimed at achieving demonstrable optimal management of energy, environmental, human, waste, and water assets during design, construction, and operation. Sustainable design is not a discipline on its own, but rather a common practice with thoughtful, creative, and innovative engineering that crosses all disciplines. Across Associated, staff members share ideas to meet and overcome current and future challenges. We promote economic, environmental, and social sustainability on all our projects. We collaborate with our clients to develop sustainable plans and designs.
