Grenada Solid Waste Management Authority

Queen's Park / Grenada

This competition entry is the proposed GSWMA headquarters to be located at Queens Park on the periphery of the town of St. George's. The program entailed the design of an office building to contain rental space on the ground level and offices for GSMWA on the level above. COCOA's designed a 'green' building with key features that include a living wall that wraps the perimeter of the second level, a 'shower tower' to provide passive cooling for the central access core, solar power, and a water collection system built into the structure of the foundation. With GSWMA's stated mission of protecting and cleaning the environment, the design of this project aligned with COCOA's pursuit of sustainable architecture.
