Campus Construction Update: May 16, 2011

On May 5, workers used a crane to remove the copper cupola from the turret at the southeast corner of the College Chapel. One at a time, the building’s four cupolas will be refurbished at the site and replaced as part of the renovation, which also entails extensive work on exterior masonry and the replacement of the roof covering. The cupola is about 14 feet tall and weighs roughly a quarter of a ton, says project manager Greg Hogan.
