Evan Williams Bourbon Experience
Louisville, KY United States | 2013
Having been selected to create an ecological park along the waterway of the Delaware river, specifiers decided on hot-dip galvanizing to coat their steel sculptor called "Land Bouy". The spiral stairs sculptor and lighted pole stands 55' above the landscaped grounds. The pier once stood as Philadelphia's Ellis Island, welcoming immigrants to this country in the 19th century. A fire in the 60's destroyed the pier until its reconstruction in 2014.
... hot-dip galvanizing was chosen for its ability to withstand the elements without any regular maintenance.
The desire to have the structure last in a waterfront urban environment heavily weighed on the desingners, hot-dip galvanizing was chosen for its ability to withstand the elements without any regular maintenance. Given the tight schedule and ecological demands on the project, hot dip galvanizing was also chosen as a sustainable and schedule friendly coating. The galvanizer was able to turn the material around for further fabrication and erection in time manner that otherwise could not have been accomplished with many other coatings.
The "Land Buoy" will give visitors a panoramic view of the cities' Delaware River front, for many years to come. The steel galavnized structure also provides a safe, long lasting, & asthetically pleasing sculpture to enhance the new public space along the Washington Ave Pier Park.
