Abstract

The goal of this project was to design an environmental research facility with an adequate fire protection system and to improve the wastewater treatment on the summit. This project assessed building and wastewater treatment needs for the extreme weather conditions on the summit of Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Two separate structural frames using structural steel and concrete were designed, and the structural steel frame was recommended as the best option. An INERGEN fire protection system was selected for the proposed research facility. The current package wastewater treatment plant's influent and effluent characteristics were analyzed. Recommendations were made to modify the processes of the current wastewater treatment plant and to improve influent characteristics.
