Loureiro Contractors Inc. performed site, concrete and masonry work for the rehabilitation of the seawall and dock at the Yale University Guilford Biological Field Station as a result of damage during Hurricane Sandy. Specific items of work included demolition and reconstruction of a concrete boat ramp, repairs to the masonry seawall and demolition of the damaged steel dock that was replaced with a cast-in-place concrete dock. The concrete dock was a design-build alternative provided by Loureiro Engineering Associates, Inc. as a cost savings approach.

Additionally, Loureiro demolished a shed located on Horse Island, one of the Thimble Islands, and remove it from the site.
