North Fork Powerhouse
I had some reservation of this powerhouse project. The utilitarian architecture of the 1950's is not an era that I am generally attracted to. Any reservations that I had quickly disappeared once we arrived at the site. As with past powerhouse projects, this location has a personality of its own, and its pristine appearance clearly displays the passion PGE employees have for these facilities. The simple lines of the exteriors fade nicely into the surroundings and allow the natural landscape to stand out on its own.
I was fortunate to return to the site in the summer for another project, this time, with the opportunity to speak with some of the employees caring for North Fork. The wonderful relationship they have with the facilities, surrounding environment and co-workers (family) is one that is becoming rare in our modern time. PGE and its employees should be commended for their continued efforts in fostering this environment and dedication.
