Northwest Water Commission

Wold was initially hired by the Northwest Water Commission to evaluate their existing building and develop options for addressing their long-term space needs.

The NWC serves communities in the northwest suburbs of Chicago by distributing Lake Michigan drinking water to member municipalities. Throughout its existence, operational changes have put pressure on their existing facility’s functional and space capacities; and they were at a point where they needed to assess options for expanding their footprint to accommodate their current and future needs.

Wold worked closely with NWC staff to establish a space program that aligned with current and projected future space needs. This information was used to develop design options and budgets for consideration by the board of directors. The NWC approved moving forward with the recommendation to construct a new 8-vehicle storage garage and new board room space and to repurpose existing interior space for improved staff work environments. The building systems were also updated, preparing the NWC for the next 20-30 years.
