Topping Out at Pace

by The 100 Companies

   Origins of “topping-out” are thought to date back to Scandinavian religious practices, but could also be traced to ancient Egyptians, Romans and Native Americans. Thought to represent gratitude to the spirits of trees that were harvested for use in construction materials, the tradition symbolizes growth and brings good fortune.

   At Pace, students painted and signed the final beam, which was then topped with an evergreen tree, an American flag and hoisted into place.
