Located in downtown Naperville along the Riverwalk, ERA and its team of subconsultants worked with the City of Naperville to provide a structural assessment of the Moser Tower, home to the Millennium Carillon. It is said to be one of the four largest carillon structures in the United States. Our findings during the investigation phase verified that the tower was structurally sound and within the realm of repair. That led to ERA’s development of contract plans and specifications to address the required concrete repairs, steel repairs and painting, and waterproofing issues experienced at the base of the tower. The project was let in May with construction commencing in June. Workers are currently installing scaffolding around the entire perimeter of the structure so they may access repair locations. ERA is providing construction engineering services to the City to help ensure the repairs are constructed in accordance with the contract documents. The Moser Tower and Millennium Carillon will be closed to the public for the remainder of the 2021 season and the bells will be silenced until construction is completed in the fall.
