Reeves Young Contracting, strategic construction partner of Sustainable Water, recently accepted the CMAA Project Achievement Award for the development and execution of the WaterHub at Emory University in Decatur, GA.
The annual South Atlantic Chapter Construction Management Project Achievement Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in the practice of construction management. The awards program is designed to recognize and promote professionalism and excellence in the management of the construction process. The winners of this year’s awards were chosen based on the unique contributions their project made, as well as how each project solved a problem, created an opportunity, or overcame challenges.
The WaterHub at Emory University is an on-site water recycling system on the University campus which utilizes eco-engineering processes to clean wastewater for future non-potable uses. Being the first system of its kind to be installed in the United States, this project was awarded a CMAA Project Achievement Award due to its capability to clean and recycle up to 400,000 gallons-of wastewater per-day –displacing nearly 40% of Emory’s total campus water needs and making a significant impact in the water-stressed Atlanta region. Since its inception just over one month ago, the WateHub has reclaimed 6.2 million gallons of water for the University.
