Our team had the privilege of taking part in the topping off celebration for the Brookfield Calgary Place yesterday. With the last signature beam placed 60 stories up, this tower is now the tallest building in Western Canada.
Having a tree strapped to the beam signifies a goodwill gesture of bringing life into the building and to provide a positive omen to everyone involved in the construction project. It also signifies that no fatalities occurred during the entire time the building was underway. At Walters, safety is a top priority, so topping-off ceremonies, like this one, hold significant importance for us.
Check out his video that shows the journey of the last beam from a unique perspective.
