The new El Paso Water Administration Building crafts 67,000 SF of high-performance workspace centered around the health and well-being of its occupants. In collaboration with renowned firms Lake Flato Architects and Arup Engineers, the design embodies EPWater’s innovative spirit as a steward of sustainable development. The site will incorporate native and drought-tolerant landscaping designed by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects. It will implement stormwater strategies to demonstrate how to sustainably utilize and develop land in the Chihuahuan Desert region. The El Paso Water Administration Building will house most of the utility’s operational departments, including engineering, and its projected 290 full-time employees. The first phase of the project, a two-story parking structure, will begin construction in late January. Our design team is enthusiastic about contributing to shaping the presence and evolving identity of EPWater.
