Korsmo Construction Wins Federal Contract to Rehabilitate Mount Rainier Paradise Inn Annex

Korsmo was recently awarded a federal contract to rehabilitate the historical Paradise Inn Annex at Mount Rainier National Park. Work begins this month with a tentative completion of spring 2019. This is our second time working at Mt. Rainier. In 2008, Korsmo completed the new Henry M. Jackson Visitor Center and performed a similar rehabilitation of Paradise Inn. Working on the mountain presents its own unique challenges with the huge amounts of snowfall, harsh winds and below freezing temperatures. The team has just a couple of months to physically separate part of the Annex from the remainder of the building using hydraulic jacks, pour a new concrete foundation and then plumb and level the building before winter weather moves in. Korsmo is proud to continue the restoration of an important part of Washington State’s history at Mt. Rainier National Park.
