West Point Lighthouse

The West Point Light Station is one of four such stations constructed along Puget Sound in the late 19th century. The lighthouse and fog signal structure occupy their site with three support buildings - an oil house and two keepers' quarters. The unreinforced masonry and wood-framed building is structurally sound, but suffered from wind damage and moisture intrusion. Delaminating stucco cladding, rusted metal elements, broken window glass, missing and dry-rotted wood, and paint fatigue were evident when the project started.

The first project, exterior restoration of the lighthouse, was completed in 2010. BOLA developed an initial Historic Structures Report with Grulich Architecture to guide the work, and subsequent design documents, technical specifications, and construction administration for the repair and restoration. A second phase, re-roofing of the keepers' quarters, was completed in 2011.
