PROJECTS : STRUCTURES
This page brings you some of the other structures that Tri-State Company has built over the years. Some of these structures include shelters, outdoor classrooms, climbing/rapalleling towers, and cope courses. Even though we are dedicated to building hiking trails and other outdoor infrastructures associated with them, we have expanded out and have taken on many different challenges. These projects exhibit the same quality work that Tri-State is associated with.  So take a look at some of the pictures and maybe we could build something like it for you.
