Construct Lightning Protection LC 39B
The Construct Lighting Protection LC 39B project consisted of providing the labor, equipment, and materials to construct three 594-foot, self-supporting structural steel lightning protection towers at Launch Complex 39 B at the Kennedy Space Center.
The work involved site work, the installation of 216 precast concrete piles, cast in place concrete foundations, structural steel erection, and FRP lightning masts, catenary wire system. Ivey's Construction is self-performing all concrete, structural steel erection, and installation of the catenary cable system. The massive towers were partially assembled horizontally on the ground and then lifted into place with a Manitowoc 21000 (1000-ton capacity) crane.
