United States Coast Guard Repairs
West Coast Contractors (WCC) is doing work as a subcontractor for H&H Builders from Tooele, Utah to perform work on several Coast Guard facilities in Washington, Oregon and Northern California. H&H, a longtime supplier of construction services to federal and military sites, has been very successful at winning bids at Coast Guard installations along the Pacific coast. H&H uses subcontractors such as WCC to perform many of the on-site repairs.
During 2020, H&H and WCC are working on;

WCC is performing repairs to the Galley at Station Coos Bay, repairing water damage and replacing the tile floor.
ATON Repairs, Station Crescent City, Crescent City, CA
AIDS to Navigation, or ATONs, are lighted and unlighted buoys, lighted and unlighted fixed structures such as day beacons and lights, ranges and lighthouses that assist with keeping ocean-going traffic in the right direction at the right time, similar to traffic signals and signs. These are maintained Coast Guard personnel along America’s waterways.
In 2017, a cruise ship bumped a fixed ATON in Crescent City Harbor, damaging the steel piling supporting the light. WCC mobilized a crane and barge at the harbor and replaced the damaged piling, helping to make sure the harbor remains safe for marine traffic.
Boathouse Repairs, Station Humboldt Bay, Eureka, CA
Station Humboldt Bay has a crew of 30 dedicated personnel and is home to four rescue boats to keep folks on the water safe. WCC will be making repairs to the aging boathouse and associated structures in the summer of 2020. The majority of the work will be done from a barge in the bay, outfitted with one of WCC’s many cranes and other heavy equipment.
