Long Beach Water Treatment Operations / Laboratory Building:  Long Beach, CA

Honor Award
American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles

This project was awarded the Honor Award by the American Institute of Architects.  The Operations/Laboratory Building is a two-story, 25,000 square-foot complex divided according to its function.  It is responsible for treating 25 million gallons per day (mgd) of high-color groundwater and 25 mgd of low-color groundwater.  The high-color groundwater will be treated by conventional treatment (coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation and filtration) preceded by ozonation.  The operations functions are located on the upper floor so that the treatment plant operators can view the entire treatment plant.  The second floor program includes: control room, support offices, lockers and a kitchen/eating area.  The laboratory functions are located on the ground floor for ease of sample transporting.  The first floor program includes:  lobby, assembly room that seats 200, offices, a library, microbiology laboratories, general chemistry laboratories, organic and inorganic instrument rooms, chemical storage, sample control laboratories, sample preparation laboratories, and pilot study room.  The client desired that the new building be public-friendly, in an effort to involve and educate the community on the processes of water treatment.  In order to accomplish this, the design placed special emphasis on the community related program elements, such as the reception lobby, public workshop areas, the auditorium, and tour areas.
Responsibilities included:  site analysis, architectural design, construction documents, and specifications.

Hyperion Water Treatment Plant:  Los Angeles, CA

The Hyperion Plant occupies a 144-acre site, adjacent to Santa Monica Bay, near Los Angeles International Airport, and treats most of the wastewater generated in the City of Los Angeles, as well as much of the metropolitan area.  The surrounding community expressed significant concern in the early stages of planning of the project.  Lumsden was hired to create a complex with a high level of architectural design which would appeal to the community.  The new expansion program specified design and construction of 30 buildings including an administration facility, laboratory, operations center, warehouse service facility, headworks, switchyard building, new distribution facility, new aeration basins and tanks, renovation and replacement of headworks, new oxygen generation facility, renovation and construction of new secondary clarifiers, operations center, laboratory and anaerobic digesters.  The concept of the building is a modular kit of parts.  To maximize architectural quality and variety, a series of unique panel forms was developed for a typical modular bay.  The multiplicity of forms became cost effective through the repetitive application of these combinations over several modules.
Responsibilities included:  site analysis, architectural design, construction documents, and specifications.

Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant:  Los Angeles, CA

Progressive Architecture Award

National Gold Medal Award
Society of American Registered Architects

Honor Award
American Institute of Architects, California Council

Honor Award
Society of American Engineers

The Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant was designed to produce reclaimed water that will meet the requirements of the California Department of Health Services and the County Health Department for specific uses with the priority to protect public health. The plant capacity was developed in five incremental capacity stages of 40 million gallons per day (mgd) resulting in an ultimate capacity of 200 mgd.  The contextual relationship of the architecture and landscape was very significant since the plant is located in a major suburban area, a 90-acre site in the Sepulveda Flood Control Basin.  The administration building, along with the Japanese garden, provides 15,000 square feet of offices and laboratories and 5,000 square feet of display area.
Responsibilities included:  site analysis, architectural design, construction documents, and specifications.

Edward R. Roybal Comprehensive Health Center:  East Los Angeles, CA

The final design for the Roybal Center responded to the aesthetic traditions of the local community.  Evoking the exuberance of Mexican art, the glazed ceramic tile facades are wrapped in angular, intensely colored geometric ribbons.  Along the main facade, a frieze nearly 300 feet long depicts scenes from a traditional Mexican saga.  The upper two levels of the reinforced concrete structure, which comprise 113,000 square feet, contain medical service modules for prenatal and postnatal health care, dental and treatment facilities, mental health services, and pediatric clinics.  Roybal Center's emergency clinic has been designed for 24-hour walk-in operation.  Parking for Roybal Center is provided on the lower two levels, with space for 350 cars.  From initial planning through the completion of the construction stage, residents of the community expressed exceptional interest and pride in the project.  The Center goes far beyond satisfying the basic health care needs of the East Los Angeles community .  By purposely incorporating the cultural heritage of Mexican Americans, the Center encourages the community's use of its services and strengthens their identification with the building.
Responsibilities included:  programming, site analysis, design.
