High Concrete in Denver making big precast panels for Statue of Liberty Museum
Helping to construct a museum on tiny Liberty Island, home of the Statue of Liberty, is not an ordinary task.
That’s why the project’s designers turned to a company that’s demonstrated extraordinary skills — High Concrete Group.
Under a $2.9 million contract, Denver-based High Concrete is producing and erecting 144 pieces, mostly architectural precast concrete panels, for the striking building.
“We have a reputation of taking on sophisticated and complex projects...,” said President J. Seroky. “I think they looked at us because we have experience with challenging projects similar to the one they have.”
The Statue of Liberty — Ellis Island Foundation, with the support of the National Park Service, is building the 26,000-square-foot museum on the 14.7-acre island.
Liberty Island remains open to visitors during the construction of the $70 million museum, set to open in 2019.
