Oxford, Mississippi


DESCRIPTION

Timeless Columbaria installed 11 discrete cabinets incorporating 792 niches covered in Cambrian Black granite. The niches measured 12" x 12" x 18" and the cabinets were 8 feet high, with the longest being 11 feet in length. The Timeless scope of work also included the structural steel system to support the cabinets, pre-cast stone and brick.

CHALLENGE

The historic Oxford Memorial Cemetery is approximately 99% full, with only a handful of remaining unassigned plots. In order to provide the contiguous area to implement a new inventory of niches, a maintenance building that occupied a prominent position on the top of a hill was demolished. Since there were grave sites in close proximity to the maximized columbarium footprint, all construction materials and all construction activity needed to be staged within the construction site boundaries.

SOLUTION

Timeless Columbaria designed and prefabricated substructures that allowed bolting in place onto pre-placed foundations. Each structure was modeled in three-dimensional space, validated for position and absence of interferences in a giant assembly model and then accurately fabricated to minimize any required modification. The steel substructures and cabinets were delivered in sequence and staged within the site boundaries according to the assembly sequence. Starting with the steel and followed by the cabinets, each discrete subassembly was offloaded and positioned onsite to facilitate sequentially lifting and placing, using an all-terrain forklift. Aside from slightly enlarging a small number of anchor-bolt holes to accommodate foundation tolerances, all of the subassemblies bolted together as designed, requiring no field modifications. The installation was completed by the Timeless Columbaria installation team in 7 days.

TESTIMONIALS

“We were able to install the 24,000 pounds of steel and 11 cabinets onto the pre-placed foundations in less than 7 days. Even though this was a one-of-a-kind custom project, the only modifications we needed to perform were slightly enlarging a few anchor-bolt holes. Otherwise all of the connections were bolted and everything fit together beautifully.”
