Now that the deadline has passed for companies to submit bids to the DNR attempting to take on the Eagle Tower Construction Project, one component of those proposals could help the DNR with their decision aside from meeting required federal ADA requirements. The original Eagle Tower was made from wood, before it was torn down earlier this year and Campaign Director Rachel Stollenwerk at this time says that the material that will be used for the new tower has yet to be decided on.
With design playing a big role in the project, Stollenwerk believes that different companies will propose different types of material that could potentially give the tower that same authentic look, but not necessarily be made from entirely wood. She went on to elaborate saying that this decision has yet to be made in part to making sure that the Eagle Tower Committee does their best to prevent a repeat of any kind of structural damage to the new tower in the future.
