Van Winkle Construction held a Topping Out Ceremony for the Whitefield Academy Upper School project January 12 to commemorate the installation of the final piece of structural steel framing in the building. Representatives from Van Winkle, subcontracting firms, the project design team and Whitefield Academy marked the occasion with a catered Bar-B-Que lunch.
Greg Kerr, Van Winkle Senior Project Manager, said, “This party is a quick ‘time-out’ in the process to recognize the hard work of all our subcontractors and thank them for their efforts. I’m very pleased the job is on schedule and within budget.”
Work on the new 50,000 sq. ft. Upper School facility began in June of 2011. When finished, the building will house classrooms, science labs, offices and a 443-seat black box theater.
Perkins + Will of Atlanta, Georgia is the project architect and Richmond Sterling of Atlanta, Georgia is the owner’s representative.
