ALABAMA VETERANS CEMETERY

ARCHITECT:

WALCOTT ADAMS VERNEVILLE

PROJECT LOCATION:

SPANISH FORT, ALABAMA

CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCE

WSC served as general contractor over the 13-month Phase I construction process of the Alabama State Memorial Cemetery at Spanish Fort. The picturesque cemetery is Alabama’s first and only state veterans cemetery and allows for 2,776 burials in the 23-acre tract of Phase One. Burial sites include double depth crypts, traditional gravesites, columearium niches and in-ground cremains. The detail and size of site improvements, which required full attention to erosion/sediment control throughout construction, was a challenge on the rolling property. The cemetery boasts a 2,746-square-foot administration building with conference, eating and office spaces, a 1,089-square-foot committal shelter, and a 3,696-square-foot maintenance building.
