Representative Projects

Laboratory/Industrial Waste Facility and Parking Garage

Allegheny County Sanitary Authority

ALCOSAN retained AE Works to provide professional consulting services for the Design of the Laboratory/Industrial Waste (Lab/IW) Facility and Parking Garage.  The existing Laboratory and Industrial Waste buildings must be demolished to make space for the Wet Weather Plant Expansion, requiring the construction of a new Lab/IW Facility. Because the new facility will be located on ALCOSAN’s current Union Parking Lot, the design will also include an adjacent multistory parking garage to replace the lost surface parking. Sci-Tek provided surveying, geotechnical engineering, and construction support services.
