Kittery, ME - Modular Dry Dock Enclosures

Summit Metal Fabricators was hired by the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard to design, fabricate, assemble and test a Modular Dry Dock Enclosure System that features motorized, retractable roof sections that are designed to allow the Navy to assemble and dissassemble the enclosures for multiple uses within its own shipyard. Comprised of over 197,000 pounds of steel, this modular construction project included two 50,000 pound modular roof sections, supported by a single 85 foot long steel truss weighing approximately 25,000 pounds.
