Alpha Corp to Repair Independence Tower
June 21, 2010

Alpha Corporation has been selected to provide construction management services for the National Park Service for the rehabilitation/repair of the historic Independence Hall Tower, which once housed the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. This project will arrest current deterioration of the Tower, due to water damage, and replace and refurbish selected deteriorated elements including roofing, wood siding, decorative wood elements, balusters and the copper urns on the Tower. A new lightning protection system will also be installed.

In addition to full-time on-site CM, Alpha Corporation will provide special inspections, project controls and contract administration during the construction which will take approximately 18 months and will take place while Independence Hall is open to the public, requiring stringent safety procedures.
