Project Profile: Copper Metal Roofing Installation, Custom Copper Fabrication, Concord, MA

Description: This is a new construction project. The cupola was built on-site in historic Concord, Massachusetts. It was then transfered to the shop for the copper to be clad to the roof. A design change was made along the way: The original intention to add a weather vane to the top of the cupola was changed to fitting the top with a simple point.
