“Coyner Springs holds a special place in the hearts of many in the Waynesboro area. Its historic rock-lined water channels and picnic shelters have been a favored recreation spot for generations. The challenge of creating a new water treatment facility at this site was taken as an opportunity to respect local character in new construction and to demonstrate that infrastructure projects can be both functional and very attractive. The City of Waynesboro designed a building that fits the Coyner Springs’ park setting. The design team embraced a barn style and natural materials that complement the beauty of the area and local architectural traditions.
The project was directed by the Department of Public Works with architectural design by FPW Architects, construction by Anderson Construction, and engineering by Draper Aden.” For more information and images on this project, see our Coyner Springs Water Treatment Plant section of our portfolio here.
