- $105m worth of construction completed in 87 days
24/7, 3 shift work schedule 
- The buildings included comfort stations,lifeguard stations and offices
The 58 ton structures were manufactured in Pennsylvania,
  trucked and barged to the sites 

 

 

 

Along with boardwalk and beach access renovation and repair, Triton Structural built and installed 35 prefabricated modular buildings on beaches in New York City as part of a project to repair damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The comfort stations, lifeguard stations and offices sit on an elevated concrete pier above the sand with access provided by ramps.

The units were transported to Newark on semi trailers as “Super Loads” due to their size (approximately 58’) and weight (115,000 lbs). They were then barged to the beach and hoisted into place with the largest crane available in NYC. Despite tremendous logistical challenges, all of the setting work was done at night.
