Last week I took some more pictures of the East County Hall of Justice. You can click on the link to see pictures of the construction from several months ago.Last week I could see that the building was close to being topped out, but could not see the tell-tale signs.
Earlier this week I took a walk at lunch and I then saw the signs that it had topped out. I had a clue earlier that morning when I saw a large tent had been erected on the job site. This tent would have been for the top out ceremony.
Can you see the tell-tale signs in the picture above?
In a topping out ceremony the workers will sign the beam that is painted white. The beam may also have an inscription and be signed by others who are involved in the project. A tree or branch and a flag are common items that are placed on the beam.
The work has just begun, but with the main framework in place other teams of workers can really get to work.
Should I keep taking pictures?
