Coachella Valley Water District

SVA’s design for the Coachella Valley Water District’s new building efficiently places emphasis on the diverse uses of the facility, while incorporating the existing facility into the design for a truly cohesive complex. The project incorporates an undeveloped plot of land adjacent to the existing drive aisle and with parking both to the west and in front of the existing 12’-0͟ high 2-to-1 slope to the east, with the design facilitating pedestrian access from both levels. Additionally, storm water drainage is designed to be treated on-site and allow for overflow to follow the existing drainage course with no negative impact to the proposed structure.
