The Installation of Structural Steel Columns – a major construction milestone!

On November 21st, we launched an important phase of our restoration of the historic Opera House Theater! We celebrated the installation of four 35-foot long steel columns, each weighing over five tons. These beams were raised over 80 feet in the air and carefully inserted in the building through the roof. This work launches an important phase of the construction project, and will serve as a key milestone in the work on Newport’s historic Opera House Theater.
