Boston Valley Restores the Historic Sydney Water Board Building

In 2015, restoration was completed on the former Metropolitan Water Sewerage and Drainage Board Building in Sydney, Australia. Built in 1939 by Australian architecture firm H.E. Budden and Mackey, the building is known for its glamorous Art Deco details and innovative 20th-century precast features. Materials on the building include marble, granite, bronze, brass and terra cotta, which Boston Valley Terra Cotta was contracted to manufacture for the restoration.

The Water Board Building has since been transformed into the 120-bed, luxury 5 star Primus Hotel.
