The Boston and Maine Railroad was previously the dominant railroad of Northern New England. In the undertaking of the B&M Railroad project, two towers were reconstructed from old photographs to restore an historic structure (built in 1876) in downtown Lowell, MA. Steel support structures were fabricated and then clad with framing, sheathing and imitation slate to replicate the original building. All steel fabrication and carpentry work was accomplished in the parking lot behind the station and each tower was raised into place via crane lifts. The larger of the two structures was a clock tower with its lower section covered with brick and simulated granite corner stones and clock surrounds. Each tower has four dormers with simulated granite arch lintels over each window opening. All masonry was completed in place atop the existing building. Lumus was complimented on a “spectacular job of restoration”, and the Mayor of Lowell said “we are so pleased to have a proficient contractor to help revitalize the City of Lowell.”
