Noman M. Cole, Jr. Pollution Control Plant Non-Process Facilities Master Plan

Lorton, VA

Samaha conducted a master plan for Fairfax County’s Noman M. Cole, Jr. Pollution Control Plant, an advanced wastewater treatment plant. The study, which focuses on modernizing non-process facilities includes the following:

  • Performing field investigations of the site and 15 non-process buildings.

  • Developing as-built site plans and floor plans for use in planning efforts.

  • Distributing and analyzing questionnaires, as well as performing interviews with plant staff from 20 distinct employee groups to determine specific program needs.

  • Compiling a detailed program to accommodate current and future personnel, equipment, and vehicles.

  • Proposing multiple design options to improve future flexibility, efficiency, security, sustainability, and cost control.

To maintain standards of quality and cost efficiency, Samaha prepared a Design Standards Manual to address all future non-process design projects. This included creating standardized employee workstation designs to increase productivity and provide employee equity between diverse groups. In addition to planning for long-term goals, Samaha is currently implementing modernizations for the plant's immediate short-term needs. The first of these projects are modifications to existing maintenance shop spaces in Buildings ‘A’ and ‘T’ to improve user efficiency and safety.
