Butier Engineering, Inc. provided construction management and field engineering services for the Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility Visitor Center Renovation Project. Over 100,000 students, professionals, and international delegations have toured the center since it opened in 1995. The renovation project has resulted in a multipurpose visitor center that will better enable West Basin to educate guests about the District’s mission, various water recycling treatment processes, as well as water-related issues in the region. The major components of the project include the following: 

  • Replacement of the existing large public meeting room and storage room with a larger divisible meeting/conference room;
  • Remodeling and enlargement of the public restrooms;
  • Remodeling and enlargement of the lobby and entry vestibule;
  • Relocation of the small conference room;
  • Installation of new displays and interpretive exhibits;
  • Reconfiguration of the existing parking lot;
  • Construction of a new parking lot on the east side of the entrance;
  • Architectural and aesthetic improvements, including new paint, millwork, glass partitions/doors, ceilings, and flooring; and
  • Installation of new electrical, lighting, mechanical, HVAC, plumbing, fire sprinkler, and audio/visual systems
