Ark Encounter

Wedding barn with beautiful sunset.

The Noah’s Ark story is about a man with great faith who built a large ship to hold his family and 2 of every living animal species to spare them from a catastrophic flood.  

Today, the life-sized reconstruction is a design feat unlike any other structure. Known as the Ark Encounter located in Williamstown, KY, the $100 million project is the largest timber-frame structure in the world.

Our role on this project was to supervise and manage the erection crews for this gigantic timber frame structure. This 510-foot-long replica of Noah’s ark attraction required more than 60 timber half-frames, each weighing anywhere from 12 tons to more than 16 tons.

The finished ark is 1 ½ football fields long, 85' wide and 95' tall. Crews used about four tractor-trailers of lumber per week, roughly 200 in all, or 3 million board feet, including some massive logs 28” to 38” dia. X 48’ long.
