Bow Lake Transfer Station

Working with KPG Architects, Integrated Design Engineers provided the structural engineering to create a conceptual design for the main transfer station building's 200 x 200 feet column-free interior space. The transfer building houses two 90-ton trash compactors that process approximately 900,000 tons per year of municipal solid waste. The entire facility is approximately 101,000 square feet and fully enclosed to reduce pollution to the surrounding environment.
