COSTARICA / Costa Rica
Cuerpo de Bomberos de Costa Rica
The purpose of this project was to increase water sustainability by designing a water collection and storage system at the Bomberos’ National Fire Academy in San José, Costa Rica. Interviews with stakeholders revealed that the key design priorities were for an “effective, beautiful, and inexpensive” system. The project resulted in designs for a sediment filter, water storage tank, rainwater harvesting system, and water recycling system. The proposals provided the Bomberos with a return on investment of approximately three years.
