Cianbro Construction routinely handles projects that are a bit out of the ordinary.

In the past, the company has done everything from construction of floating offshore wind turbines, to installing 230 miles of electrical transmission lines and the replacement of thrusters on a massive oil-drilling ship. So when the search was on for a contractor to erect an observation wheel near Washington, D.C., Cianbro led the list.
