The USS Constitution is an American staple in history, especially for her actions in the War of 1812! It was one of six frigates in the US Navy, named by George Washington. It was l launched in 1797, and is now one of the oldest commissioned warships still afloat in the world. However, since it is almost 220 years old it was in need of some restoration.
This past summer of 2016, Capital Construction Contracting Inc. was honored to perform the restoration work needed on the USS Constitution in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The quarter galleys of “Old Ironsides” were covered in an old lead roll roofing that was weathered and battered. We fabricated the custom-made quarter galley roofs right in our own metal shop and restored them to their natural copper beauty!
During the summer of 2016 the masonry crew at Capital Construction did the mimic work for the front of 662 Mass Ave. Perfectly mimicking the sill work and corbels. During the spring of 2017 our gutters team replicated the wood gutters on a Historical landmark. The list of work goes on and on and we want your historical renovation or contracting work to be our next.
