Topping out event held for The Bridge on Forbes

The Bridge on Forbes Topping Out Ceremony

 

Pittsburgh, PA - On Wednesday, September 26, 2018, Rycon hosted a topping out ceremony for The Bridge on Forbes project in Oakland. Team members from Rycon, Pinecrest, Desmone Architects, and on-site workers joined for lunch and were able to sign the last structural beam before it was hoisted over Forbes Avenue and placed at the top of the elevator shaft.

As tradition holds, an evergreen tree, an American flag, and a broom were all part of the beam raising ceremony. The tree symbolizes growth and good luck for the building, the broom symbolizes a "clean sweep" for the jobsite, meaning the jobsite has stayed safe and there have been no loss days to date, and an American flag to symbolize pride in the project.

Rycon is proud of this milestone in the project and looks forward to continued success as we work towards completion.
