BRW-Architects prove that classic architecture results in an elegant
church design! Campbellsville Industries was able to reproduce their
design exactly, bringing their vision on paper to reality. The steeple
has a Cream Kynar finish for the body of the steeple, and 20 oz.
natural copper for the spire and cross. Kenbridge Construction was the G.C.

This historic church was established
in 1644, and when accuracy and attention to detail were needed to replicate
the old steeple and weathervane to accept modern cellular phone antennas, they
chose Campbellsville Industries. The weathervane has 23 1/2 K gold leaf
finish. The bottom photo shows the Senior Minister, Rev. Mike Duda,

Independence Hall and fabricated by
Campbellsville Industries for the Dr. Edward L. Hutton School of

A beautiful traditional steeple is always in
style, especially when accented with a Classic Copper finish on the
spire and transition roof areas. This metallic copper finish does not
turn green and keeps the "bright copper penny" look for many years to
come. Everything from the masonry upwards is a maintenance-free Kynar
finish. This attention to detail is the "Campbellsville difference".
Cell-phone antennas do not have to be be put in a large unsightly tower.

First Church of
Christ in Unionville, CT
When the First Church of
Christ in Unionville was approached by a cell-phone
carrier as a possible site for their cellular antennas,
the first thought was "We don't want to ruin the
traditional architecture of our church". The antennas
had to be concealed in a steeple and the steeple had to
blend in with the architectural styling of the church. It
couldn't be some company's cookie cutter stock design that
would look like it was put on as an afterthought. That
just wouldn't be acceptable. The
church contacted Campbellsville Industries, and had a
custom steeple designed that incorporated some of the
architectural motifs of the building and blended in
beautifully with their surroundings. Communities today
do not have to settle for unsightly towers and phony
faux pine trees and palm trees to conceal their cellular
antennas. A church can get the steeple that they wanted,
a monthly income stream, and the cellular provider now has a
site that is "community friendly". It's a win-win
situation for all parties. Communities don't have to
settle for less when the solution is just a phone call
away. Call or
email Campbellsville today for
your quote! Check out some of our other concealment
solutions on our
cellular steeple page. Phone: 800-467-8135.
Replicates Fire Damaged Cupola for
County Courthouse in Madison, Indiana
Jefferson County officials
had just finished renovations to their courthouse in
time for their bicentennial celebration. Tragically, the
courthouse and clock tower burned a few days before the
Campbellsville Industries worked hand in hand with
the restoration architect, project engineer, and local
historic commission to reproduce their 59 ft. historic cupola.
The cupola features four-way 5'-6" diameter clock dials,
automated clock controller, and Westminster chime
system; a 13 ft. custom weathervane; and the domes have
a gold anodized finish. Architect: Rob Creviston of

Historic Muhlenberg County Courthouse / Greenville, KY
Campbellsville Industries provided the
historic reproduction of the clock tower, and complete cornice system
for the Muhlenberg County Courthouse, including: dentils, modillions, paneled railing, gabled pediments, and
scrolled brackets. The clock tower has the largest open belfry of any
pre-fabricated cupola in the United States. The tower
is 56'-5" in height, and the base measures 36'-4"
wide. The cornice has an overall
vertical height of
3'-3", with a 2'-2" projection. Campbellsville provided new clock
dials for the existing gear driven clock movement that was refurbished. The
original bronze bell was also refurbished and is struck by a hammer driven
via the clock movement. Architect: Craig Thomas of RBS
Construction Manager: Codell Construction Company.
Billed as "The Historic Replication of the
Decade" - Campbellsville Industries has returned the famous
Hoboken clock tower to the New Jersey Ferry Terminal on the
waterfront of the Hudson River, where it was originally
constructed 100 years ago. The project has also garnered
Campbellsville Industries a
2008 Merit Award
for Excellence in Architecture by
the New Jersey Chapter of AIA. The Ferry Terminal is located across
the river from Manhattan. The clock tower is part
of a 100-year anniversary of the birth of one of the most
renowned transportation centers in the United States. This clock
tower is the largest prefabricated clock tower in the world and
is designed to withstand 120 mph winds. Phase 1
and Phase 2,
included the window and clock section of the tower, and Phase 3 includes the open belfry
and and hipped roof with finial - all clad in 20 oz. copper left
in its natural state to age to a green patina to match the
copper on the terminal building below the tower. The four clock dials are
12 ft. diameter and are backlit at night. The "open" belfry
actually is enclosed with bird netting inset in copper frames. The 4
ft. high vertical copper letters spell out the word "Lackawanna",
illuminated by fiber optic lighting. Click on the photo for more images of the
installation of this phase.
Campbellsville is working with Hall
Construction Company, Tishman Construction Company, and the
architectural firm of Beyer-Blender-Belle. The architect is
George Beckwith. We congratulate the New Jersey Transit
authority and the local officials who have returned one of
America's vanishing cultural and architectural resources for
this generation and for future generations to come. Experience the Campbellsville difference

Campbellsville Industries celebrated 57 years of
continuous service to the church
construction industry in 2012. Campbellsville Industries pioneered the prefabricated
church steeple and cupola and
thus rightly earned the nickname "The Steeple People"®
from architects across
the country. We have over 18,000
installations scattered throughout the 50 United States, Canada, Mexico, and
at least six foreign countries. Our trained installation crews log over
500,000 road miles annually.
Campbellsville Industries was
established in 1955 by local Campbellsville College (now
Campbellsville University) president Dr. John M. Carter, as
a practical means of obtaining funds for hard-pressed
students. From 1955 to 1965, 412 students worked their way
through college while at Campbellsville Industries to help
pay their college tuition.
Campbellsville Industries is proud of our role
in helping America to maintain our architectural heritage, by allowing many
counties and cities the affordable opportunity to restore their historic
architectural landmarks to the rightful positions in the skyline, without
the cost and maintenance problems associated with conventional stick-built
construction. Old-world craftsmanship married with new-world materials, help
many to turn back the clock and pass on their architectural heritage to
generations to come. Our product line has expanded from church steeples and
cupolas, to include: domes, dormers,
clocks, louvers, columns, cornices, balustrade railing, picket railing,
urns, finials, weathervanes, towers, baptistries, bulletin boards, and other
custom architectural metalwork. The employees at Campbellsville Industries like to think that we
are "Making History.....TODAY!"®
Click on the "Profile" link above to learn
more about "The Steeple People"®
makes a very sustainable and environmentally friendly product. Our steeples,
cupolas, balustrade, railings, cornices, and louvers; are fabricated from
structural aluminum extrusions, and most are clad in
aluminum. The use of aluminum in the fabrication of our products, unlike
some materials used by other manufacturers, means that not only does the
customer benefit from the lightweight and maintenance-free advantages of
this material, but also the environment benefits from the use of aluminum.
These benefits are compounded when you choose to recycle aluminum in the
products you buy. Recycled aluminum is identical to smelted aluminum, except
for one thing: it takes only 1/20 of the energy to make it. Less energy
means reduced greenhouse emissions. And like few other materials in the
recycling chain, aluminum recycles over and over again. Almost 70% of the aluminum ever produced is still in use, equaling 480
million metric tons (529 million tons) of a total 690 million metric tons
(761 million tons) manufactured since 1886. The extrusions and cladding that
are used in the manufacture of our products have high recycled content,
which benefits in the LEED certification of your project. Approximately,
95-98% of the materials our typical products can be recycled in the future.
Campbellsville's mission is to make a both a sustainable and architecturally
beautiful contribution to the world in which we live.
The use of
Prefabrication / Modularization is key in achieving sustainably in GREEN
projects. Check out our link for more information on this subject.

Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Jerseyhas been
granting wishes for seriously ill children in the state for 24
years. Two years ago, the Foundation made its own wish: to construct
an imagination-inspiring building – a wishing place – for seriously
ill children. The building would have a castle-like exterior and a
magical, child-centric interior. It would be a place where children
who face life-threatening medical conditions can believe once again
that wishes can come true. This magical building would be the only
one of its kind on the East Coast and only one of three such
buildings in the United States. It would
become A Wishing Place.
Campbellsville Industries is pleased to have been a part of
this special project, by providing the three castle towers and
