The MOC-9 project was a study in conjunction with the Metropolitan Waste Water District in San Diego, California to design a new 16,200 sf facility to house and provide for maintenance of the MWWD fleet, including pump trucks and light vehicles.
Spaces include an administration area, 9 maintenance bays, tire shop, truck wash, storage and other support spaces, and a staff lounge with an adjacent exterior courtyard.
The structure was designed to exceed California’s Title 24 requirement by means of a deep overhang to provide shaded outdoor work areas as well as direct sunlight control. Efficient and timely construction were to be aided by the use of structural tilt-up concrete panels and a light weight steel frame roof structure. (work completed with RNTA, formerly RNP Architects)
