Boston Valley Terra Cotta Brings Our Terra Cotta Restoration to Sydney, Australia

Boston Valley Terra Cotta has the privilege of bringing our restoration expertise to Sydney, Australia, with work awarded at the Former Water Board Building. Known officially as the Former Metropolitan Water Sewerage and Drainage Board Head Office Building, it was designed by H.E. Budden and Mackey and completed in 1939. A high-rise was added on in the 1960’s, however it is the original Art Deco style building for which Boston Valley has been contracted. In addition to architectural terracotta, the 1939 building cladding materials include marble, granite, bronze, and brass. With field survey work completed in September, Boston Valley personnel are now hard at work beginning the replication process.
