Restore Our Community Landmarks
After years of service, two of Louisville Water Company’s buildings, Pump Station #3 and the Gatehouse at Crescent Hill Reservoir, were in need of restoration. The time had come to rehabilitate these highly visible community landmarks.
Maintain the Integrity of Original Materials
Extensive research was conducted to identify the origin of the buildings’ materials, such as limestone and marble, so that replacement materials would integrate seamlessly.
While the project was restorative in nature, potential for functional improvements were identified and implemented whenever possible.
Minimize Environmental ImpactS
Due to the buildings’ proximity to the Ohio River and to the Reservoir where the city’s water supply is stored, great care was taken in sourcing the cleaning agents for the projects.
