Last week GFirst Staff and board members attended a Topping Out ceremony at the top of the new Growth Hub and Business School. Topping Out is a ceremony that marks the structural completion of a building, it is performed to ensure that no evil spirits are trapped in the building when the envelope is sealed, and that prosperity and good luck for the future will ensue. It takes place when the highest point of the building is reached and provides an opportunity for client, design team, contractor and workforce to toast the success of the building.
