Ceremonial Beam

After completing the installation of the final piece of steel, the construction team and Penn community recently celebrated the "topping out" of the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine. In this historic tradition, the final beam is typically painted white, signed by those involved, and raised into place with an evergreen tree and American flag attached.
