Photographer: Robin Scheswoh
Title: Auxiliary Water supply system upgrade, San Francisco, USA

Description: Scheswohl has worked for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission for six years photographing pump stations and reservoirs. She says this cistern was built in 1910, following the 1906 earthquake, as part of a supplemental source of water for the fire department. Scheswohl notes that, like the worker who was engaged in seismic upgrade work in the image, she wore a hazmat suit, a harness and an air quality monitor as part of her equipment to get the shot. The monitor was used to detect the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas.

Selected from hundreds that were submitted, this year’s “Images of the Year in Construction” features photographs that best capture the mood and flavor of construction during 2012. Read the full story
