Christ Church Cathedral Bell Tower

On Friday July 8th, 2016, crews lifted into place the two halves of the new Christ Church Cathedral Bell Tower.

The tower was constructed and painted offsite to take advantage of the precision assembly and coating possible in a controlled shop environment. It was constructed in two halves because the transmission of gravity loads generated by lifting the entire tower would have blown in the walls of adjacent underground parking structures.

Look forward to the arrival of the bells and cross in two weeks!
