Holyland Cross

New Cross

O,R&L Construction replaced the 50 foot tall cross located on Pine Hill in Waterbury for the Religious Teachers Filippini. The old cross was taken down after years of weathering and replaced with a durable energy-efficient cross. The new cross is constructed of galvanized structural steel tubing with steel framing angles to support the exterior metal skin cladding. The initial 20’ is clad with a galvanized metal plate to resist tampering and the upper illuminated section is of stainless steel cladding for weatherability. The cross has always been a prominent landmark in Waterbury and will continue to be illuminated by focused beams of light to the structure.
