Taking Treatment to the Extremes
Designing a wastewater treatment facility that meets current environmental guidelines can be challenging enough. But designing it so it can be shipped, constructed, operated, and maintained...

The Rationale for Above-Surface Facilities
The redevelopment of the U.S. Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station—currently in the beginning phases of construction—will include the largest and most ambitious example of an elevated station...

The Construction Challenges
The varied SPRP construction and construction management complexities of the new South Pole are even more challenging because summer work must be carried out within a compressed window...
