Burnham Topping Out Ceremony
Lake Nona?s Science & Technology Park celebrates another important milestone as construction crews hoist the final steel beams into place at Burnham Institute for Medical Research at Lake Nona. In celebration, the BE&K Building Group is hosting an on-site ?Topping Out? barbeque for construction crews and guests.
The term ?topping out? is used by ironworkers when the final piece of steel has been placed on the building, signifying that the project is not complete but has reached its maximum height. Tracing back to ancient European customs, topping out celebrations remain a tradition in new construction projects as a way to bless a new building, thank its construction workers and wish them continued safety as they complete the project.
