The Lifting Station PR5 project is part of the Coye-La-Forêt wastewater treatment plant carried out by the Syndicat Intercommunal for the Collection and Treatment of Wastewater from the Bassin of Thève and Ysieux (SICTEUB). The project is located in a rural site on the border between urban areas (housing at 100m) and natural areas (undergrowth, agricultural plains, etc...). The building designed by AR ARCHITECTES is inspired by the architecture of an agricultural farmhouse and fits harmoniously into the landscape thanks to its volume and wooden materiality.
The PR5 consists on two entities, the burried part is made of concrete, it contains the storrage of the discharge station. The above-ground part contains the electical room, the ventilation room and the operator room.
Treated HEQ® targets :
TARGET 1 : harmonious relation of the buildings with their immediate environment
The building designed is inspired by the rural and agricultural architecture surrounding the site : the outside volume is similar to an agricultural farmhouse. Use of eco-materials with a low impact on the environment and harmonious integration in the natural landscape.
TARGET 2 : integrated choices for construction process
The cladding is made of pine wood. The frame is made of large wood. Outdoor insulation in wood fibers. Terracotta tiles.
TARGET 4 : energy management
Thanks to its insulation, the operating building has a good inertia and reduces its energy consumption. Natural lightning and ventilation of the process area thanks to the facade openings.
TARGET 5 : water management
The rain water treatment is managed by : Alveolated slabs allowing rain water to be infiltrated into the earth.
TARGET 8 AND 9 : optimized hygrometric comfort and acoustic comfort
The hygrometric and acoustic comfort for the operators building is guaranteed by the insulation of wood fibers.
TARGET 15 : biodiversity.
The landscaping design is composed by different varieties of local wildflowers. This mixture encourages the life cycle, ensures a large presence of insects on the site and promotes the presence of wild pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
