The Regional Services Center houses LOTT’s Water Education and Technology (WET) Center, water quality laboratory, offices, meeting rooms, emergency operations center, and the board room.  The Regional Services Center houses LOTT’s Water Education and Technology (WET) Center, water quality laboratory, offices, meeting rooms, emergency operations center, and the board room.  The four-story building allows for a relatively small building footprint, while providing 24,000 square feet of floor space.  The architectural firm Miller/Hull Partnership designed the building, with guidance from a team of LOTT staff members and a Board member.  The design team worked closely with the Port of Olympia, the City of Olympia, and the Hands On Children’s Museum to coordinate with the broader design concept for redevelopment of the East Bay district.

LOTT is committed to sustainability.  We recover valuable resources such as biosolids, methane gas, and reclaimed water for beneficial use.  With design of this building, we discovered another opportunity to demonstrate responsible environmental stewardship.  Many energy and resource conservation ideas were included in the building’s construction, ensuring that building operation is energy and water efficient.

Salvaged Materials – The wood on the office walls and in the ceilings is salvaged from an old industrial warehouse formerly located on a neighboring Port of Olympia site.

Green Power – The building is powered by electricity produced by the site’s cogeneration system, which generates electricity and heat from methane gas produced as part of the wastewater treatment process.

Water-Conserving Fixtures – Restrooms in the building feature high-efficiency fixtures such as toilets, faucet aerators, and urinals, minimizing the amount of water required.  The toilets and urinals are plumbed to flush with Class A Reclaimed Water, produced on-site at the Budd Inlet Reclaimed Water Plant.

Green Roof – The roof’s vegetation and soil take up rainwater, reducing the amount of stormwater runoff that would be generated by a standard, hard-surface roof.

E.	Reclaimed Water – The fountain and pond, and the irrigation system, are supplied with Class A Reclaimed Water, which is produced on-site here at the Budd Inlet Reclaimed Water Plant.

Recycled, Recyclable, and Renewable Building materials – Many materials used in construction of the building are recycled, recyclable, or renewable, creating a “cradle to cradle” system for use, recycling, and reuse of materials which helps to reduce waste and conserve resources.

Native Vegetation – The site is landscaped primarily with native plant species, which are naturally drought-tolerant and well-adapted to our local area.

Daylighting – The building is designed to maximize natural light, with large banks of windows in all offices and meeting rooms.  Clear glass partitions allow the light to travel from these rooms deep into the interior of the building.

The LOTT Alliance helps preserve and protect public health, the environment, and water resources by providing wastewater management services for the urbanized area of north Thurston County. It’s four government partners – Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater, and Thurston County (LOTT), jointly provide wastewater facilities including a central treatment plant, major interceptor sewer lines, pump stations, and reclaimed water plants.
