PACHENA POINT LIGHTHOUSE
The Pachena Point Lighthouse is located 12km south of Bamfield on the West Coast Trail within the Pacific Rim National Park. Site access for this project was limited to helicopter access or foot access by hiking the West Coast Trail. The Lighthouse is recognized as a “Federal Heritage Building.
The work completed during this project included temporary shoring of the wood tower frame and the lantern room, lens pedestal, and Fresnel lens. Once the shoring was in place the lantern room and lenses were jacked up to allow access for the refurbishment work. The deteriorated and damaged wood framing was replaced, the entire building envelope was stripped off and replaced, and the entire lighthouse was repainted. During construction it was determined that two entire columns had to be replaced. Each column (length of approximately 40ft) was air lifted in by helicopter and installed by CMF carpenters.
The value of this project exceeded $715,000.
