Building Project Update – Topping Out Ceremony

building project updates 22

Our steel crew completed the job of placing all those girders with a “Topping Out” ceremony.

It’s a time-honored tradition in commercial steel construction to have an official observance celebrating the completion of the building’s framing.
In a construction topping out ceremony when the last steel beam is raised in place at the highest point of the building, a small evergreen tree (known as the construction “Christmas tree”) is attached to the beam. In this country, often an American flag is also put on the opposite end of the beam.
