Today we celebrated the topping-out of our wellness center! This age-old construction milestone is celebrated by painting the last beam, securing an evergreen tree and the American flag atop it and then lowering it into place.
Jim McGillivray, superintendent for general contractor Graham Contracting of Seattle, said the next milestone of the project is getting the roof in place. “We want to get the roof on as fast as possible,” McGillivray said. “That’s the first part of dry in and once we get dry in we can start all of the interior work.”
