ZORN AVENUE PUMP STATION STRENGTHENING

ZORN AVENUE PUMP STATION STRENGTHENING

The Louisville Water Company’s Zorn Avenue facility is a historic icon of the city. The 90 plus year old Pump Station building is still in use today. Deterioration of the structure and changes in its use resulted in the floor system being inadequate for the owner’s needs. The existing structure was assessed and found to be an ideal candidate for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) strengthening. The deteriorated concrete elements were cleaned and restored to original profile, but still needed the added strength of CFRP for shear and bending. The lightweight strengthening allowed for a leveling surface repair of the sagging slab above while still increasing the ultimate load capacity with no reduction in clearance below and keeping the usage of the basement in service during construction. The scope also included masonry repairs & replacements and crack injections.
