San Diego Pump Station



San Diego Pump Station Facade Mockups

Under Construction

Located along Harbor Drive of the Airport Marina, the new Sewer Pump Station’s 42’-tall and 150’-long cast-in-place concrete façade records the tide pools and deposition of sedimentary layers of San Diego’s coastal geology. We custom-fabricated concrete indentations and horizontal striations using software and CNC machines. After creating a 3D model, we worked with a formliner company to hand-sculpt multiple molds which were used to cast the wall of the pump station. The project has required complex coordination between architectural, artistic, and engineering disciplines, along with the contractor and Department of Public Works.
