CAPE HENRY LIGHTHOUSE

CAPE HENRY LIGHTHOUSE

CAPE HENRY LIGHTHOUSE

This project consisted of installing a concrete retaining wall, deck and steps around the base of the lighthouse. Once this was poured, all of the concrete was covered with granite and pavers. Finally, railing and landscaping was installed to complete the project. This job had numerous challenges. The site is elevated so all material had to be pumped or lifted with a crane. The site requires walking up 80 steps just to get to work. Some of the granite pieces weigh over 5000 lbs. The solution to these problems was to lift a 20,000 pound excavator up to the site with a 200 ton crane. All of these items coupled with a very confined workspace made the project complex. Conquest is very proud to have had the privilege to work on the first public works project authorized by George Washington.
