We are proud to announce that steel has reached the top of the Pavilion for Advanced Care and Penn Medicine University City. Many thanks to all those who ventured out and braved the cold temperatures to sign the beams that will top each structure! In building construction, “topping out” ceremonies are held when the last beam is placed at the top of a building. Often a tree or leafy branch is placed on the topmost beam which is painted white and signed by all the workers involved. Topping out beams are often adorned with flags and streamers before being hoisted to the top of the building. Weather permitting, topping out ceremonies will be scheduled by the end of February. Stay tuned to the Presby Bulletin for more details. See the full story for photo slideshow.
