Although the water tower has not been used for its original purpose (water distribution) for many years, it remains one of San Nicolaas’ most recognizable landmarks. At 40 meters in height, this old giant did not escape the ravages of time, As a result, the Aruba Foundation for Monumental Care sought to restore the entire tower. The first floor was not only restored, but also expanded to incorporate a staircase with a modern glass façade. With the creation of more space, the building was successfully repurposed as a museum.
Albo was not only able to complete the project to specifications, but also did so ahead of schedule, delivering the project four weeks early to the principal.
