Westerly’s town beach pavilion was damaged by Hurricane Sandy, and in order for the town to receive financial assistance from FEMA, it needed to be in full compliance with all regulations. That called for Pariseault to remove the truss roof and move the entire building thirty-two feet north onto a new wood friction piling system with new supporting members and cross bracing. After painstaking field measurement and strategic layout, the building was hoisted and relocated. Once in its new location, an extensive renovation then commenced with all new exterior decks, observation platforms, handicap access ramps and stairs constructed in place. The success of this project has positioned our team for other challenging coastal projects.
