The City of Rio Rancho’s (City) Recycled Water Master Plan is an ongoing program to reduce the consumption of potable water and reduce or eliminate the discharge to the Rio Grande by providing treated wastewater for irrigation and aquifer recharge.
The approximately 5,000 square-foot Home Health Care Agency of the Pueblo of Zuni sits on 1.52 acres and administers various health care services for the residents of the Pueblo. The new facility replaced the existing building that was no longer able to provide quality services to the residents and not a suitable work environment for the professional services offered by the Home Health Care staff. The building provides staff offices, a training room/employee lounge, equipment cleaning, services and storage for medical supplies.
More than just a fitness facility, the 20,800 square-foot Zuni Wellness Center was designed to serve the community with a place to gather for nutritional counseling, diabetes and general health classes, as well as working out and fitness activities. The Center was built in two phases.
The approximately 4,400-square-foot Zuni Teen Health and Family Wellness Center provides a new safe place for youth to gather, interact with each other, and form a sense of community with the Tribe. The building has two distinct areas, an activities space and a health clinic.
The 9,600 square foot Zuni Senior Center provides the Elders a safe, comfortable, and culturally responsive place to gather, socialize, and conduct programs. The building’s main space, a large activities room, allows for group activities such as exercise, dining, and social events. The breathtaking view of the sacred mesa, Dowa Yalanne or “Corn Mountain,” fills this room with its majestic presence and reinforces the Elders’ tie to their sacred land.
In June 2017, the Artesia Aquatics Foundation selected the Huitt-Zollars design and planning team to provide architectural and engineering design for their new family aquatics center and high school competition pool. The project emerges from a collaboration between the City of Artesia, Artesia Public Schools, and the AAC Foundation.
Huitt-Zollars is currently working on the first phase of the VLL Data Center in Los Lunas. The project consists of overall master planning for the entire 300-acre campus. The first phase will include the construction of the internal road system and the first two buildings within the campus, totaling over 1,000,000 SF.
Huitt-Zollars was Prime Design on this project aimed to remove a 40-year old 2,800-GPM lift station from service and replace it with a new 2,800-GPM lift station at a new location. The new design allows flow to be directed to two separate wastewater treatment plant locations through the use of two pairs of submersible pumps.
Huitt-Zollars provided the design and construction phase services for the new RRPS District’s new Training Center and Board Room Complex. The 17,300 SF additions will house three state of the art training rooms and support space for teacher and staff training in mock classroom settings. The complex also includes office suites for the Directors of Curriculum for Elementary and Secondary Education. A new 150 seat Board Room is included in the design.
Huitt-Zollars provided the design and is currently in the final stages of the construction administration services for the new fire station facility in High Desert’s exclusive Mariposa subdivision. The site is a rural location in the northwestern high desert of Rio Rancho in close proximity to Bernalillo at Highway 550 and Unser Blvd. Because of the rural nature of the site all utilities, infrastructure, roadways, curbs, gutters, etc., had to be extended.
