William A. Grant Water & Environmental Center, Phase 1

Walla Walla Community College
Walla Walla, WA

The mission of the William A. Grant Water & Environmental Center is to facilitate collaboration, innovation and serve as a watershed information resource for the region. ALSC worked closely with the College and the Walla Walla Watershed Alliance to develop a building program and design that fulfills this ambitious mission.

The Center features an expandable office cluster along with five collaboration rooms of various sizes. The heart of the building is the circular collaboration hall. The collaboration hall is the symbol of the purpose of the Center and is prominently placed within the lobby/learning center.

The building is LEED Silver Certified. Sustainable features featured in the design include minimum site disturbance, reduced water usage, reduced construction waste, improved indoor air quality, natural daylighting and reduced energy consumption.
