This is the seventh in a series of Blog posts related to the design and construction of the Banner University Medical Center new hospital in Tucson, Arizona.
As the hospital building exterior framework nears completion, Schuff Steel organizes the “Topping Off” ceremony which includes speeches, “topping off” hats, and the ceremonial last beam signed by project and hospital staff before hoisting it in place.
Although the building construction continues at a rapid pace, there is still lots of activity in the BIG Room with user group meetings, BIM (Building Information Modeling) systems to coordinate, and all the related project estimating and documentation requirements:
The BIG Room is also filled with big characters who help keep us focused, on-track and in good spirits. They also remind us that despite the demands of developing a large complex building, it’s important to have fun - whether it’s during a report-out or to create a shrine to weird food and multi-tasking in our shared kitchen.
The BIG Room and its talented collection of personalities is truly an experience. Thankfully I got to enjoy this short time with some dedicated and fun people.
