Big-D Construction along with Weber State University, VCBO Architecture, and other trade partners, participated in the “Topping Out” ceremony of the new Noorda Engineering, Applied Science & Technology building on Monday.
Painted purple and signed by several involved in the project, onlookers including future Big-D employees, watched as the final beam was hoisted into place. Affixed to the beam was an American flag on one end and an evergreen tree on the other; a tradition which dates back centuries and, depending on who you ask, is rumored to date back to Egypt and the construction of the pyramids.
Situated on the north end of the campus, the Noorda Engineering Building will serve as the new home for the College of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology (EAST). Stay tuned….construction is expected to be complete Fall 2022.
