Collums Construction has High Time at Algiers Courthouse

HCC workers replace Algiers Courthouse clock

Collums Construction workers replace Algiers Courthouse clock

Bryon Cornelison watched as a Collums Construction crew installed the fourth face on the clock tower of the historic Algiers Courthouse. This was a goal he had worked to accomplish for the previous six months. As treasurer of the friends of the Algiers Courthouse, Bryon accepted the task of researching and replacing the clock tower. Unsure of how to proceed, Brian made his first precarious trip up the multiple ladders to the top of the clock tower. The numerals had completely faded, the mechanisms no longer kept accurate time and the backlighting was a corroded mess. Luckily, Bryon was able to find the name of the previous clock manufacturer. Soon upgraded, new clock assemblies were being custom made for the courthouse.

The install required a 65’ extension lift and some of Collum Construction’s most experienced aerial workers

Bryon contracted with Collums Construction to install the tower clocks when they arrived. Since the tower clock faces were over 50 foot high, the install required a 65’ extension lift, and some of CC’s most experienced aerial workers. Two workers rode the lift up with the clock face while two more assisted from inside the tower.

After two days of work on the installation of the new atomic, satellite syncronized clocks the Algiers Courthouse once again displays accurate time for the timeless neighborhood it serves.
