Waterworks Administration Building

Government & Municipal

Erie Water Authority, Waterworks

Administration Building

Erie, PA

Weber Murphy Fox completed a master plan study for the Erie Water Authority in 1994. The purpose of this study was to examine the Authority’s facilities at multiple sites and develop a master plan for consolidation of activities at a single site. The bay front site at the foot of Chestnut Street was selected for development and consolidation.

The first element of the master plan – additions and renovations to the Administration Building – was designed. The project is an aggressive addition, renovation and preservation project. It consists of administration offices on the top floor created by adding roof dormers and a new clerestory. The second floor contains engineering, financial and accounting offices. The first floor houses the billings and collections department, boardroom and conference rooms. New stair and elevator towers were added to the east and west of the building. The building was designed to act as a focal point for the existing complex and to reflect the handsome Italianate Renaissance revival style of the existing buildings.
