New Welcome Center water features
We excel at creating complex and interactive water feature fountain projects for civic and commercial landscapes. We work to maintain good communication with all members of the project in order to stay as current and competent as possible. Often these projects require problem solving within the vision of the project so we rely on our flexibility and expertise to help bring projects to fruition. We study plans, sites and materials, alongside client requirements, working to anticipate and avoid potential problems or delays before they affect the project. This business style has proved beneficial to engineers and designers who seek to have the best possible project installed but know how difficult water, as a media, is to work with.
Spray Park Renovation
As a result of an Arts In Public Places grant, Waterwise collaborated with several area contractors to revitalize a pedestrian square in downtown Fort Collins. Choreographed, lighted jump jets, fog cauldrons and pop sprays bring an interactive community park to life.
This 30-foot water feature re-circulates up to a small basin near the ceiling of the dining hall, pours over a ledge and falls down into two basins on the first floor. Acting as a humidifier, the waterwall adds moisture to the air and helps regulate the indoor climate of the building, therefore reducing the amount of energy that would have been required to run a humidifier in a similarly sized building. The building was constructed using “green” building techniques, which included the waterwall, and meets LEED Gold standards.
Through the efforts and donations made by Waterwise and other local businesses, we were able to create an outdoor plaza to enhance the Center’s new facility just north of downtown Fort Collins. The plaza features a spacious area for the Center to host outdoor events, large seating boulders for lounging and a beautiful landscape with shade trees.
