Public & Infrastructure

Lower Thukela Bulk Water Supply Scheme 

Client: Umgeni  Water

Location: Kwazulu-Natal

Structural Engineer: Aurecon

Services Engineer: Aurecon

Year: 2012


A new control and administration building with laboratories, offices, workshops facilities for the operation and management of the proposed Lower Tugela Water Treatment Works.

The design of the building aims to put the people who will be operating the plant at the centre of the architectural concept. This ‘operator-centric’ approach drives the spatial layouts, and aims to encourage active engagement between operator and their duties, and between operator and the building itself.
