Project Info

Lane Tech Clock Tower

Lane Tech High School opened as a manual training school for boys in the 1930s during the Great Depression. The current building, situated on a thirty-acre campus, is the largest high school in the city of Chicago with more than 4,200 students representing all races, creeds and national origins.
Early in the spring of 2015 a $50-million dollar renovation project was started at Lane Tech and is expected go through early 2017. Our job was to restore the four faces of the iconic clock tower that looks over the entire campus. Many of the glass pieces were broken or cracked and needed to be replaced. Graffiti had to be removed and several pieces of the metal framework had to be recreated and replaced.
