Huitt-Zollars was selected by the City of Houston to provide the City’s Drinking Water Operations with multiple building improvements at various facilities. This included a facilities needs assessment, space planning, programming, design, and managing the flow of work during the complete project, i.e., from conception to completion, for the City of Houston’s Drinking Water Operations.
The City of Houston contracted with Huitt-Zollars, Inc. to conduct assessments of their facilities. One major component of these assessments was the City’s existing Drinking Water Operations facility at 7000 Ardmore. The original task, following the assessments, was to develop a master plan for the administrative offices and scattered maintenance shops on the existing site. Huitt-Zollars determined that the existing buildings would have to undergo extensive renovations in order to meet the new building codes, user needs, and future growth of the facility.
