Aviva Insurance Company relocated its company headquarters in West Des Moines, Iowa and wanted to create stylized landscaping around its new office building. Confluence and SVPA Architects commissioned Waters Edge to help develop an aquatic concept throughout the landscaping.
As a key member of the design team, Waters Edge helped select appropriate equipment to support a natural flowing stream with a cascading waterfall. The stream flows through two crossing sidewalks, so that employees and clients can have a peaceful and tranquil setting for an afternoon walk. Waters Edge recommended ways to improve operation and aesthetics of the water effect while providing structural details to increase durability and safety.
