The Corps of Engineers, at the Historic Clock Tower Building, sought out an aesthetically pleasing and sustainable covering for three entry points.


Monoxivent, along with parent company, Crawford, designed, fabricated, and installed three fiberglass canopies for the Corps of Engineers’ historic Clock Tower Building at the Rock Island Arsenal. The canopies provide a covered entry point and protection at the Clock Tower, while adhering to aesthetics and sustainable standards set forth at the historic landmark. The canopies feature a color scheme and oak leaf accent design to match the original historic fencing around the building.

The project was unique as it involved multiple divisions of the company. The design and engineering was done in house. The fiberglass manufacturing was done by Monoxivent’s Corrosion Composites, the stainless steel structures were manufactured by Crawford’s weld division, and the installation was performed by a Crawford field crew.

Additional support for the project came from: Appalachian Plastics, Tully Industrial Inc., Missman Stanley and Assoc., and Shoemaker Fine Wood crafting.

The project was an excellent example of teamwork and coordination within and outside the company.
