Alabama Power Water Resource Center

Birmingham, Ala. (March 1, 2016) – March is here and time is flying.  We are taking a moment today to pause and reflect on an older project, completed in ’95.

The Clanton District Office for Alabama Power Company combines typical customer service functions with several services unique to this district where the utility operates hydroelectric dams and manages the reservoirs for recreation.  The challenge met through design was to integrate these varying program requirements while providing separate functional areas and entrances.  This was solved with a linear pre-function space that provides a link among the program areas, and serves as an access control feature for the varying program schedules at the facility.  The Alabama Power building, including design, site work and exhibit installation, was completed in eight months.  CMH received an Honor Award for the building from the American Institute of Architects.
