This project explores an alternative structural design for the Worcester Memorial Clock Tower currently being built at Worcester Psychiatric Hospital in memory of the Worcester Insane Hospital. It is proposed to support the tower using a steel frame and builds the tower envelope with precast tilt-up reinforced concrete panels and embedded stone veneer attached to the steel. A cost estimate and construction schedule for the alternative design is prepared and compared to the existing design.
