Construction of the new HMP&L Service Center began with clearing of approximately 8.42 acres of land located at 1213 Barrett Boulevard. The new facility houses all the operations which were previously located in five separate buildings in downtown Henderson on the block bordered by Fifth Street, Main Street, Water Street, and the railroad tracks. HMP&L had been located in downtown Henderson since its first building was built in 1896 at Fourth and Main Streets. The buildings on the old site have been used by previous businesses such as Henderson Brewing Company, Henderson Ice & Storage and an auto dealership, to name a few, and were acquired by the Utility through the years. Some date back to the early 1900’s.
This new service center consists of a main operations building being a one-story, brick building of approximately 58,295 square feet, a covered storage building of approximately 15,660 square feet, a paved/enclosed area behind the building for the pole and material yard, and a paved area in front of the building for visitor and employee parking. The main service center building will consist of administrative offices, a public meeting space, training room, warehouse, garage, and truck docks. Construction was completed in January of 2024.
