Woods IslandCharter Construction was contacted by Chubb Insurance to inspect and assess repairs for a client’s existing cistern structure on a private island located in the Puget Sound San Juan Islands, just north of Seattle, WA. Owners had noted that the cistern was starting to show signs of collapse. Charter worked closely with the structural engineering team that was brought in by Chubb Insurance. The assessment by the engineer and Charter had determined the structure had failed from the ground up.
Charter Construction went through the structural design and construction process to bring the cistern up to code and supply longevity that comes from having a low maintenance, simple structure. The structure also had to withstand the hostile weather environment found in the outer regions of the Puget Sound.
