启德明渠全长 2.4 公里,源自九龙半岛腹地,经启德开发区(前身为启德国际机场)流入维多利亚港。明渠始建于 20 世纪 50 年代,见证了九龙市区在 20 世纪后半叶经历的巨大转型与城市化进程。早期,由于旧有污水系统设计失误,工业污水和生活污水误通过雨水排放系统进入启德明渠内。这导致了启德明渠水质恶化,周遭气味难闻。 

20 世纪 80 年代,香港政府开始推行“吐露港污水输出计划”(THEES),将大浦及沙田污水处理厂处理过的污水输送至启德明渠,对明渠进行冲刷。历经多年,由于香港政府投入大量精力不断改善城市污水排放系统,并加强对非法排放的治理,启德明渠的水质与周围环境得到了显著改善。

香港渠务署委托阿特金斯进行明渠中游部分 500 米的改善工程以及此部分与上游部分 200 米的景观设计工程,这不仅是政府提高启德明渠防洪能力的重大举措,更是政府为满足公众改善明渠环境的心愿所采取的实际行动。工程内容包括:加固老化的明渠渠堤、重建旱季水流拦截设施、引进各种硬件及软件景观元素来美化明渠周围环境,进而将启德明渠改造为当地一道亮丽的风景线。

在香港特别行政区水务署发起的为期 15 年的水管更换和修复项目中,阿特金斯承担了主要角色。该项目包括更换和修复 (R&R) 长达数千公里的淡水管和盐水管,旨在最大程度地减少泄漏并防止供水管网的进一步老化。20 世纪 90 年代末,阿特金斯曾协助水务署展开资产管理研究,R&R 计划即在此基础上发展而来。自那时起,阿特金斯便在遍布整个中国香港的水管(560 多公里)调研、设计和施工监管方面承担主要角色,其中包括:

  • 九龙水管工程第 1 阶段 1 期 (2000-2008),水管总长约为 160 公里,铺设在新界南总区和九龙的人口密集区域
  • 香港岛及周边岛屿水管工程第 1 阶段 2 期 (2004-2010),包括更换和修复香港岛上总长约 66 公里的水管
  • 九龙水管工程第 3 阶段 (2006-2013),包括在九龙另外铺设总长为 340 公里的水管。

对于很多人而言,阿特金斯设计的伯兹阿拉伯酒店是现代化迪拜的象征,如埃菲尔铁塔对于巴黎一样意义非凡。毋庸置疑,这两座建筑物是其所在城市的地标性建筑,尽管“地标”一词在当时鲜为人知。

无论迪拜伯兹阿拉伯酒店地处何处,都是一座巧夺天工的建筑;然而不可否认,其之所以名声大噪且影响力巨大与其在对的时间出现在对的地点密不可分。

当阿特金斯受邀设计该项目时,很快便认识到了它的非比寻常。客户要求展示出迪拜这座新崛起城市的独特韵味,但是当时并没有任何可以借鉴的建筑设计案例。于是阿特金斯的设计师们开始从人们的精神风貌及其对贸易的开明态度中寻找灵感。如今城市中分布着大量的集装箱码头及机场,贸易往来频繁,而这一切皆是从简单的独桅帆船开始的。

由于酒店矗立在海滨之上,因而帆船的设计理念与其得天独厚的地理位置融合得天衣无缝。如今,白色船帆形酒店与海湾的蓝天碧水形成鲜明对比,俨然如同一个在 Al Gaf­fal 帆船竞赛中等待起航的选手。

Under this design-build project for the USACE Omaha District, Atkins designed a 17,876-sf air traffic control tower (ATCT) and collocated radar and approach control (RAPCON) facility at Grand Forks Air Force Base (AFB).

To meet future needs at the base, the previous facilities were demolished and replaced with the new construction. The new facility coordinates flights from the tower in and out of the base, and from instrument flight rule (IFR) operations in and around the base and Grand Forks International Airport.

The scope of work for this $12.5 million contract included demolition of existing facilities and construction of a new ATCT and RAPCON. Constructed of similar materials and collocated for operational efficiencies, the new structures meet US Air Force and Federal Aviation Administration standards for safety, efficiency, and uncompromised control of flying traffic.

The project received the U.S. Air Force, Air Mobility Command's 2011 Design Award for Facility Design.

For XTO Energy, a subsidiary of ExxonMobil, Atkins is coordinating environmental and regulatory activities associated with approximately 17,000 acres of lease holdings in the Bakken Shale play of the Williston Basin in North Dakota. Project activities include agency coordination with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), North Dakota Industrial Commission (NDIC), and Fort Berthold Agency (representing the Three Affiliated Tribes [Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara]), in addition to various local governments and stakeholder groups.

Initial coordination was required during the siting process for more than 20 individual drilling pad locations through on-site assessments to determine preliminary surface boundaries of drilling pads and access roads. Once locations had been established, a range of 6 to 12 wells would be drilled on each location with a total of more than 200 proposed well locations planned. To facilitate drilling activities, Atkins prepared environmental assessments (EA) for each location on behalf of BIA and through collaboration with the Three Affiliated Tribes. Each EA was required to present a purpose and need and subsequent assessment of project impacts (known and potential) supported by mitigative measures intended to minimize potential resource impacts.

In addition, Atkins coordinated with project surveyors and land lease staff to complete and solicit approvals for Applications for Permit to Drill (APD) for each well for both BLM and NDIC. Extensive agency coordination with lead and interested agencies was required to facilitate project approvals and meet lease drilling obligations.

The coral reefs of the Flower Garden Banks (FGB) are the most sensitive biological habitats in the federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Since 1973, the Minerals Management Service (MMS), formerly the Bureau of Land Management, has conducted a program of protective activities at these reefs.

This program includes implementation of the topographic features stipulation (no activity zone, four-mile shunting zone), and a long-term coral reef monitoring program in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA’s) National Marine Sanctuary Program. MMS mandates require monitoring of coral populations to detect incipient changes that may be caused by oil and gas activities.

The FGB monitoring program has been continuously funded since 1988 by MMS and NOAA. Two sites, each 100 m by 100 m and 1,825 m deep, have been monitored over that period: one on the East FGB and the other on the West FGB. No significant long-term changes have been detected in coral reef populations, total coral cover, or coral species diversity at the FGB since quantitative surveys of the reefs began in 1988. Percent coral cover on these reefs is among the highest measured in the entire region. These reefs are therefore potentially excellent models for understanding future patterns on reefs throughout the region and their causes.

The five-year monitoring (water quality, fisheries, and coral-density analyses) of these two coral reef sites, located about 105 miles directly south of the Texas/Louisiana border in the Gulf of Mexico, continued through 2009 under this contract, and services are ongoing for final report preparation and approval. Throughout the contract, the members of the project team produced a number of peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts, technical papers, and presentations.

To recognize the achievement of conservation excellence through collaboration, the Atkins project team along with team members from NOAA and MMS, received the prestigious Cooperative Conservation Award from the U.S. Department of the Interior.

Taking inspiration from the unique geological and topographical features of Peterlee, we layered and staggered the buildings and selected materials in a way that reflects the area’s mining heritage and responds to the staggered layers of geology found on the site. A palette of textured projecting dark brick brands forms a plinth above contrasting white render echoing the strata found in the local chalk cliffs which have exposed black coal seams.

The scheme has been extremely well received by users and the local community, who have embraced its uplifting and inspirational design. A great example of how highly the new building is regarded is its use as the venue for an annual cultural heritage community festival bringing together hundreds of people from across Durham.

Our Selby College project transforms an existing disjointed site into a single coherent campus environment.

In 2003 Selby College took the decision to completely modernise their facilities to offer an education fit for 21st century learning.

The combination of outdated single storey school buildings and 40 years of steady growth and expansion had resulted in a site lacking focus and identity, as well as unused spaces around its parameter.

The design strategy completely transformed the use of these spaces, making the forgotten parts of the site the location for new buildings.

This strategy not only created a ‘heart’ to the campus, it also resolved another great challenge in the brief which was to construct the new campus – including replacement of approximately 65% of the colleges facilities – without disrupting the current school curriculum.

Atkins was part of the design team for the new San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Atkins produced plans, specifications and estimates (PS&E) for the westbound approach structure.

The westbound approach structure spans from Oakland to the cable-stayed main span bridge that ends on Yerba Buena Island in San Francisco Bay. The cast-in-place concrete box girder approach structure consists of 12 spans divided into four frames. The superstructure geometry set by the architects included a continuously changing girder depth and soffit width and required a cantilevered deck overhang at one end. The changing superstructure geometry required sophisticated 3-D finite element analysis and complex modeling. The foundations of two frames are located underwater in the soft bay mud, requiring a special foundation design. The structure uses nine 1.8-meter-diameter driven steel piles per foundation.

To design this unique substructure, a non-linear time history analysis was performed on each foundation. The final structure meets the latest Caltrans seismic design criteria for bridges. In addition to structural design, Atkins also provided staged demolition plans for the existing approach structure. Atkins provides construction support during the construction phase.

Supporting the Atlanta Regional Commission’s (ARC) transportation planning and intergovernmental coordination, Atkins developed the TAZ (Traffic Analysis Zone)-Disaggregator tool. The TAZ-Disaggregator is a highly visual and map-based tool that makes the numerical process of population projection considerably more intuitive and less prone to errors.

ARC uses this tool to create multi-decadal forecasts of population and employment at fine spatial scales based on regional forecasts derived from econometric models. Ultimately, ARC uses the resulting forecasts in traffic demand studies to test the effectiveness of community planning scenarios. The tool is capable of visualizing forecast results as charts, tables, and even as animations of regional growth over the forecast time horizon (30 years). Forecasting tools like the TAZ-Disaggregator are critical in the community master planning process. Because they emulate the land development process over time, they can be used to produce detailed spatial forecasts of demand for water, power, energy, and even communication.

As SRTA’s general engineering consultant, Atkins has supported its operations staff with deployment of the I-85 Express Lanes project—conversion of a 15-mile stretch of interstate in the metro-Atlanta region from high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) to high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes. Atkins has been instrumental in developing and coordinating the occupancy enforcement procedures and the toll operations center standard operating procedures.

The I-85 Express Lanes are open to use by registered single- and double-occupant vehicles for a fee; use by transit, carpools, motorcycles, emergency vehicles, and alternative fuel vehicles is free. Based on the number of vehicles using the express lanes, tolls will vary to keep the lanes free flowing, even during peak travel times. Tolls are displayed at each express lane entry point on changeable message signs, allowing drivers to decide whether using the express lanes makes sense for them at any given time.

A combination of tolling system enforcement and DPS visual enforcement ensures that only registered vehicles with the correct number of occupants use the express lanes and that those vehicles enter and exit the express lanes in the proper weave areas.

The 95 Express project, the first of its kind in Florida, converted a high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane to two high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes (in each direction) in the middle of I-95’s eight existing lanes. The HOT lanes, known as express lanes, allow single occupant vehicles and HOV 2+ users to use the express lanes after paying a toll. Registered HOV 3+, hybrid vehicles, buses, motorcycles, and emergency vehicles can use the lanes for free.

As FTE’s general consultant, Atkins provided design support for tolling system and infrastructure requirements for the design-build contract. We also reviewed and approved plan components associated with improvements within the right-of-way; developed a comprehensive risk assessment and mitigation plan for all project stakeholders; and developed the overall concept of operations and system requirements for the conversion I-95’s lanes from HOV to HOT.

The project won awards from the Florida Department of Transportation, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and ITS America.

To address the impacts of stormwater from land development, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency considered several regulatory options and is currently analyzing costs, environmental effects, and benefits of several options. These analyses include modeling water-related impacts to quantify water quality improvements, reduction in flood damages, and changes in other physical processes, such as in-stream erosion and sedimentation, introduced by the application of green infrastructure for stormwater management.

In support of the new stormwater rule that EPA will release for public comment in late 2012, Atkins is conducting a nationwide study to estimate flood losses avoided as a result of the rule’s application. Atkins developed a modeling methodology to arrive at an estimate using publicly available national datasets and a set of sample watersheds. The results indicate that the rule can result in flood losses avoided, ranging between $40 and $300 per acre of urban area across the lower 48 states.

The Frank Fickett Scout Training and Service Center serves as a hub and convenient gathering place for scouting units and members, stakeholders, and other community groups from a 15-county area.

Building information modeling (BIM) played an important role in this project from the earliest stages of design development. Because the selected 4-acre site was expensive, the client wanted to ensure the building would be visible from the nearby highway, while also being easily accessible.

BIM enabled the design team to explore several siting and design options before breaking ground. Because image was a chief concern in such a high-profile location, careful efforts were made to create a facility that reflected the Boy Scouts’ sense of fun, adventure, and values. BIM allowed the client to see 3D models and fly-through animations.

The lodge-style building features an outdoor fireplace and meeting area that honors eagle scouts, along with museum-quality display areas for historical memorabilia. The facility also incorporates administrative offices and a variety of conference and meeting rooms. The training facilities accommodate up to 200 volunteers at a time, and the scout shop is three times larger than its previous location.

Atkins’ design team and the client’s construction committee explored Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification for the service center using elements such as a rainwater collection cistern in addition to the existing retention pond, regional building materials, and “green” interior finishes. The facility was delivered under a construction manager at-risk method.

Atkins assisted American Electric Power’s (AEP) former central and southwest service regions’ facilities with the first phases of Section 316(b) compliance. Six AEP facilities in these regions fell under the Phase 2 requirements. These included Flint Creek, Lieberman, Knox Lee, Pirkey, Wilkes, and Welsh power stations. 

With the exception of Lieberman power station, each of the facilities withdraws cooling water from reservoirs. Lieberman Power Station withdraws water from Caddo Lake, a natural lake on the Texas and Louisiana border. Under Phase 2, each of the facilities was required to use best available technology to reduce impingement mortality. One of the first steps in this process, as required under Section 316(b), was the development of an impingement mortality baseline.

Atkins provided impingement data collection at each of the facilities. Atkins’ responsibilities included method development, impingement monitoring, data management, quality assurance, report preparation, and coordination with AEP facility staff and project management. We began by applying the methods outlined in the Proposal for Information Collection for each facility to further develop an impingement monitoring program to be used by field staff. Atkins designed and constructed collection frames and nets specific to each facility. During the early phases of monitoring, the intake screen efficiency at each facility was evaluated and, in some cases, corrective actions were taken to ensure that valid samples were collected. Impingement sampling was conducted on a bi-weekly basis for one year. Samples were processed in the field by Atkins’ fisheries staff. At Flint Creek Power Station, Atkins partnered with Arkansas Tech University for data collection and management.

Atkins is leading the overall program for the seventh addition of improvements to the Little Patuxent water reclamation plant in Howard County, Maryland, including designing improvements to expand treatment capacity to 29 million gallons/day, improving treatment performance to achieve enhanced nutrient removal, and treating a significant organic waste load from a large industrial client.

To accommodate the industrial waste load, Atkins evaluated a variety of anaerobic and aerobic processes. A low-rate anaerobic contact process, followed by an aerobic selector process, was installed for its ability to produce the highest quality effluent. This process is protective of the existing biological nutrient removal (BNR) process and is the overall lowest cost option. A slip­stream of the industrial organic waste will be used to create volatile fatty acids, which will enhance the existing biological phosphorus and nitrogen removal processes. Odors from the aerobic and dissolved air flotation processes will be sent to a new modular biofilter odor control system. To save time, the new pretreatment facilities were delivered by a combination of construction manager-at-risk (CMAR) and design-build delivery methods. We assisted Howard County with procurement and selection documents for each alternative delivery process. Innovative uses of existing facilities saved the County more than $5 million.

Atkins evaluated both post-anoxic zones and denitrification filters; denitrification filters were chosen, and Atkins assisted the County in pre-selection of the filter manufacturer. Other improvements include new bar screens, expansion of the existing BNR Johannesburg process, new secondary clarifiers, an intermediate pumping station to send flow to the denitrification filters, and a new ultraviolet disinfection system.

Under an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, Atkins is providing architecture-engineering services at Laughlin Air Force Base, located outside of Del Rio, Texas. One task order involved high definition surveying (HDS) for assessment and replacement of the existing fire protection system associated with Hangar 2.

Atkins provided expertise in the areas of high-definition surveying, architectural design, structural engineering, and electrical engineering.

The remote location of the base (a three-hour drive from the nearest major city or airport), along with the lack of reliable facility documentation, posed significant project challenges that Atkins successfully overcame through the use of HDS technology. A Leica Geosystems HDS-6000 laser scanner was used to accurately identify existing conditions and assess structural integrity of the maintenance hangar to support redesign of the fire protection system.

The time and cost savings achieved through the use of 3-D laser scanning was reinvested into engineering a more economical wet fire protection solution for Hangar 2.

Because Las Vegas obtains roughly 90 percent of its water from Lake Mead, the construction of Lake Mead Intake No. 3 helps to assure adequate water supply for future generations. Over the last 10 years, drought conditions across the western United States contributed to a declining water level in Lake Mead of approximately 100 feet. The new water intake facilitates added a much-needed water supply capacity for Las Vegas. Accessed from a shaft at a depth of approximately 560 feet, the new intake extends approximately 3 miles to a riser excavated in a cavern at the bottom of Lake Mead.

Atkins performed verification surveys of the project control using high-order differential GPS. In addition, after densifying control around the shaft, we transferred control to the starter tunnel using specialized survey gear such as Baechler prisms, Taylor Hobson spheres, and ZL plummets. Atkins also verified the tunnel alignment by providing accurate gyro-azimuth observations using the DMT Gyromat 2000. The shaft transfer technique enabled horizontal and vertical control transfer to an accuracy of 0.005 feet. The Gyromat 2000 provided survey control accuracy within an impressive 3 arcseconds.

Atkins is working with the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) to develop a stormwater best management practices (BMP) website. Applied to individual properties, these stormwater BMPs include structures such as gravel trenches placed under roof lines to catch rain water before it can erode sediment and carry it to nearby Lake Tahoe. The free, wizard-based website, called BMP Designer, allows Lake Tahoe property owners to design and implement BMPs on their individual properties.

The BMP Designer leads users through a step-by-step process of building the BMP site design. Property owners enter basic property information and general site conditions. Then, in an aerial view on the website, users can outline the property’s rooftops, driveways, decks, and other areas that can potentially drain stormwater too quickly. After the BMP Designer provides a selection of BMPs for each area, including average costs for installation and maintenance, the property owner then selects the BMPs and submits the preferred site design to TRPA for review. Once TRPA approves the site design, the property owner can install the chosen BMPs, request a site inspection through the tool, and complete the BMP certification process.

The BMP Designer makes the process of correctly planning and installing BMPs a much simpler one for Lake Tahoe area residents. Atkins specializes in developing similar step-by-step tools, called wizards, to facilitate understanding of complex regulatory, permitting, design, and decision-making processes.

Atkins’ design for Lowestoft Sixth Form College in Suffolk creates a building which targets 67% less energy consumption and 62% less carbon emissions annually compared to recently built further education colleges.

The design uses a technically driven solution to maximise passive low carbon design features, minimising the need for more costly renewable technologies. A high performance thermal envelope, unique facades on each side of the building and a concrete structure help to reduce heating demand and moderate the internal temperature. Background ventilation with cooling and heating delivered via earth tubes helps moderate the air supply. This will result in only 3.2% of the required annual building energy consumption being produced by renewable energy sources.
