The entire Norcon construction team, architectural team from DMAC, leaders at Midtown Athletic Club, and several construction tradespeople joined together today at 2020 West Fullerton Avenue to celebrate the “topping out” of Midtown Athletic Club’s new addition and renovation to their facility. This event venerates a construction milestone in this particular project for the Norcon team.
In the construction world, “topping out” is the term used by ironworkers to indicate that the final piece of steel is being hoisted into place on a building, bridge, or other large structure. The project is not completed, but it has reached its maximum height. If the project is significant enough, such as this one at Midtown, a ceremony may culminate in a celebration known as a “topping out party” in which the construction crews and personnel involved will be treated to food and drink.
