Working for Hightower and with Glenn Keyes Architects, we just completed the new steeple for St. John the Baptist Cathedral in downtown Charleston. For myself and Hightower, this was a four year project in the making and a 100 year wait for the Catholic community in Charleston. Everyone has been pleased with the outcome. The hardest part of this project was to keep all new constuction light-weight and to make the new steeple match the 100 year old cathedral. We used cold mold boatbuilding methods to achieve the weight requirements, and designed and built all our own structural precast panels.
