Louis Kahn’s Trenton Bath House and Day Camp Pavilions

Originally constructed in 1955 and found on the National Register of Historic Places (84002730), the Louis Kahn Bathhouse is an iconic structure. The scope at the pavilions includes: demolition and replacement of two pavilions, minor renovation of two pavilions (cleaning, painting, and repairs), new stabilized gravel and circular curb, demolition of select trees and additional tree protection. The scope at the Bathhouse includes: demolition of the existing plumbing, electrical renovations, new concrete slabs, and masonry work. New masonry walls will be constructed salvaged and reused existing block. The Louis Kahn Bathhouse will surpass its original glory with the addition of an ADA compliant ramp, new plumbing fixtures, granite toilet partitions, improved site sanitary and storm water piping, and restoration of the original mural work
