Bell Tower Fall Protection

View of the Bell Tower spiral staircase and safety railing

A key goal of this project was to improve the safety of graduating UNC students as they make their traditional Senior Walk up the historic tower by improving the existing steel railings. Additionally, floor hatches, ladders, fall protection anchor points and horizontal lines are being installed to protect our maintenance workers. Every decision made by the designers, contractors, and UNC project team was made with respect for the historic significance of the structure which was built in 1931.
