Classic Copper

Village Baptist Church
Village, OK
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 Steeple

Naperville Congregational Church
Naperville, IL
Cell-phone antennas do not have to be be put in a large unsightly tower. They can be housed in a Campbellsville steeple. Check out our cell-phone steeples.

Cellular Tower...or Not? Which Would You Prefer In Your Neighborhood?

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.

Campbellsville Replicates Fire Damaged Cupola for
Jefferson County Courthouse in Madison, Indiana
THE PROBLEM THE SOLUTION
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 celebration. 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.

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.

Historic Hoboken Ferry Terminal Clock Tower / Hoboken, NJ
  
        Billed as "The Historic Replication of the Decade" - Campbellsville Industries has returned the famous 225' 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", and are 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.

Campbellsville Industries Celebrates 57th Anniversary

        Campbellsville Industries celebrated 57 years of continuous service to the church and construction industry in 2012. Campbellsville Industries pioneered the prefabricated church steeple and cupola and thus rightly earned the nickname "The Steeple People"?/font> 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.

SUSTAINABILITY
Campbellsville Industries
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.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation?/sup> of New Jersey has 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 battlements.
