Precision was General contractor for the ground-up construction of a new South Lot comfort station, bus shelters, and interpretive plaza in a remote area of Yosemite National Park. The project, for Phase 5 of the Mariposa Grove initiative, was designed with heavy-timber construction to harmonize with other structures in the park.
The project team experienced significant winter weather events and road closures during construction, which could have delayed the schedule. The hard work and determination of the team — who self-performed most scopes — resulted in completing this project on time.
The comfort station is a 1,741-square-foot, heavy-timber structure surrounded by a 7,370-sqare-foot interpretive plaza. The 40-foot-tall, two-story structure includes: men’s and women’s restrooms, two family restrooms, and a storage area. The surrounding plaza provides a heavy-timber bus shelter, an arrival plaza, an interpretive plaza with historic markers and monuments, as well as picnic areas and other site improvements.
