1803 Academy on the Green Bell Tower Restoration

M.N. Reale Construction was hired by the town of Branford, CT, to restore the bell tower on the historic 1803 Academy on the Green building. We removed it and brought it to our shop to reseal water-damaged areas, and carefully clean the copper. We also had to custom cut and mill new columns to replace the existing, badly damaged columns, and reinforce them with steel brackets and bolts to properly secure the bell tower. New millwork was completed to imitate the original trim on all of the exterior surfaces. Stay tuned for its installation this Spring.
