Louisville Water Company – Pump Station #1
Louisville Water Company’s Pump Station #1 was originally built in the late 1800’s. In 2013, the restoration and renovation of the facility began, including a new northern terrace, renovation of the southern terrace, fresh paint on the exterior of the building and replacement of the existing roof. Kerr-Greulich Engineers, Inc. designed and engineered the mechanical and electrical systems for the historic facility.
Highlights of KGEI’s design include:
- Use of an air cooled chiller for higher control of modulating cooling capacities with carrying occupancies.
- Variable air volume air handling units for increased energy savings in the HVAC design.
- Air handling units utilized CO2 control for the outside air for increased energy savings.
- Renovation of entire sprinkler system, installing new wet/dry system, piping and heads. Piping was strategically placed not to interfere with the ornate balcony and ceiling wood work within the main gallery.
- New reduced pressure zone backflow preventer installed on domestic water system.
- New irrigation backflow preventer, meter and service to the building.
- All hot water piping was installed with temperature regulating heat cable.
- New exterior grease interceptor installed.
- Design lighting for art gallery function as well as meeting space.
- Modified existing electrical service to accommodate increase in electrical load.
- Complete fire alarm system within an existing historical site.
