PROJECT LOCATION:

Spanish Fort, Alabama


White-Spunner Construction served as general contractor over the 13-month Phase I construction process of the Alabama State Veterans Memorial Cemetery at 
Spanish Fort. The picturesque cemetery, located at 30904 State Highway 225 in Spanish Fort, is Alabama’s first and only state veterans cemetery. The national 
cemetery allows for 2,776 burials in the 23-acre tract of Phase One. Burial sites include double depth crypts, traditional gravesites, columbarium niches and 
in-ground cremains. The detail and size of site improvements, which required full attention to erosion/sediment control throughout the construction process, was a challenge on the rolling property. The cemetery boasts the 2,746-square-foot administration building with conference, eating and office spaces, the 1,089-square-foot committal shelter, and a 3,696-sqaure-foot maintenance building with individual service stalls, a pressure washing stall, hydraulic vehicle lift, air tool equipment, office space, kitchen and showers.
