After working with WG Clark Construction on two previous University of Washington housing projects, WaterTectonics was selected as the water treatment vendor for the Mercer Hall project. This seven-story concrete and wood-frame structure includes studios, 2, 3, 4, and 6 bedroom apartments and will house 900 students in five wings over a common parking garage. Construction on this 5-acre site began in Fall 2011 and is expected to be completed in Summer of 2013. WaterTectonics mobilized a mobile 300gpm WaveIonics electrocoagulation system for this project which allowed the contractor to process continuously through the wet season as major earthwork took place. In addition to the small footprint, the WaveIonics system is controlled by an Automated Operator which allows for reduced labor and oversight, sending messages to system operators when maintenance is needed.
