Seattle Convention Center Summit Addition - Water Treatment 

summit convention center water treatment

Summit, the Seattle Convention Center’s addition, nearly doubles the capacity of the Center by adding 573,770 square feet of event space. Covering 1.5 million square feet, Summit and the original Arch building, one and half blocks away, together create a campus built to usher in the future of meetings and conventions.

As expected, there were many phases of water treatment on this expansive project with Clark-Lewis JV as general contractor. WaterTectonics was first brought in to provide a simple tank and pump for discharge to combined sewer. As work moved to another block, WaterTectonics set up a chemical/media filtration/GAC system to meet sewer limits for VOCs. When the project progressed, WaterTectonics assisted with getting the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting.
