Perini is managing a design-build contract to repair and modernize two of the four elevators at Carlsbad Caverns National Park located in southeastern New Mexico. Carlsbad Caverns is a unique natural habitat consisting of miles of underground caves that is famous for its amazing geological features and large bat population. The two passenger elevators have been out of service for more than a year, and visitors have been using the freight elevators to descend the 750 feet down into the cave or entering at the cave's mouth and walking miles of winding trail. The project is scheduled for completion by the start of the 2018 summer season. This is Perini’s third project at Carlsbad Caverns, having recently replaced the electrical systems and feature lighting within the caves.
