Albany-- The roof on Darton College's new, 100,000 square foot physical education building has been put on--and that milestone was marked with a good luck "topping-out ceremony."
A "topping-out ceremony" signals that a structure has reached its full height and that the job went up without loss of life. Today, the College President was lifted by crane to the building's roof to plant a pine tree.
They had a little difficulty pushing the tree into the foam stand, but it was ultimately a success, although the tree was a bit crooked. After the ceremony, guests were given a tour of the as yet uncompleted facility.
The physical education building is scheduled to open in one year.
