Hannah Mason Pump Station in Willamette Park

Portland, OR

MWA designed a new freshwater pump station for the Portland Water Bureau in Willamette Park to replace the existing Fulton Pump Station.

This new facility in a much loved public park required an intensive public involvement process with 3D renderings and graphics to support the outreach effort.

Designed to LEED Gold standards, this new pump station's visual impact on the park is minimized by the use of native materials and a dark textured exterior. The new pump station will be an integral park structure, in addition to five pumps; it also provides public restrooms, and storage for park equipment.

Client: Portland Bureau of Environmental Services / Murray, Smith & Associates
Cost: $12 Million
Completion: Estimated Fall 2016
