Weber State University Topping Out Ceremony

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.

Owner: Weber State University
Builder: Big-D Construction
Architect: VCBO Architecture

Val Creamer Retires After 40 years at Big-D!

“Val has always been so focused on keeping our projects safe. He has really taken safety to a different height of awareness. I have a lot of respect for Val because he really started the program of making us a much safer company.”

– Rob Moore, CEO for Big-D Companies

After 40 years, Val Creamer, Big-D’s Safety Director, is retiring – and leaving Big-D much better and safer than when he started. He will be hard to replace, but we are thrilled to see him start this new and much deserved chapter of life.

“I believe he really cares for the people he works with as well as his family and friends. And that shows in his work life here at Big-D.”

-Jim Allison, Big-D Project Director

Congratulations on your retirement Val! 👏
