BACK / KETCHIKAN WATER STORAGE TANKS
KPG provided architectural visioning and construction documents for two pre-stressed concrete water storage tanks for two highly visible locations. One location is viewed by visitors on cruise ships, the other prominently located in a residential neighborhood. Work included visual impact analysis and conceptual design alternatives that were compatible to the Tlingit, Tshimsian, and Haida nations. The result was the pre-casting of 10 ft square concrete panels using a U-form element taken from Pacific Northwest totem design.
