Update: The final beam was raised and installed on the Iroquois Middle School addition in a topping out ceremony on May 16. A topping out ceremony is a tradition among ironworkers that symbolizes the completion of a steel structure.
Construction of Iroquois Middle School’s 20-classroom addition is progressing steadily. With the building’s foundation now in place, construction will soon begin on the steel structure. The school community came together on April 27 and 28 to mark this next phase of the project.
Iroquois students, faculty and staff were joined by district leaders to sign their names on a ceremonial beam that will be raised in place later this spring.
Thanks to our contractor, Turner Construction, for helping to organize this event!
