USS Constitution, Charlestown Navy Yard

 
 
 
The Charlestown Navy Yard, established in 1800, provided use in every single U.S. war for nearly 175 years. Many historic naval ships including the U.S.S. Constitution (the oldest commissioned ship afloat in the world built in 1797) are now preserved here.

The Charlestown Navy Yard, established in 1800, provided use in every single U.S. war for nearly 175 years. Many historic naval ships including the U.S.S. Constitution (the oldest commissioned ship afloat in the world built in 1797) are now preserved here. Throughout the years, Lumus Construction, Inc. has been awarded many projects at the Charlestown Navy Yard. After installing air handling units, ductwork, radiators controls and upgrading electrical equipment to the Constitution museum, officials were so please with the result and care taken to the historic site that they continued to hire us for future work. New work was awarded which included access ramps, handrails, de-leading and staircases were performed at the Marine barracks living quarters, without disturbing the occupants of the building. The owners and architects were very pleased with Lumus' compliance while completing this project, and they also awarded us restore projects of Buildings 24, 4 and 125, to resemble the original construction. To further explain our relationship with the Charlestown Navy Yard, Lumus Construction, Inc. rehabilitated the Commandants House including fire detection and suppression, and constructed the “New Constitution Visitor center” which is the prized attraction aside the U.S.S Constitution.
