Yale Science Building Reaches for New Heights

YSB Topping Off Ceremony Beam
February 2, 2018

On Jan. 31, campus leaders gathered to mark the “topping off” of the building — the point where construction crews reached the highest spot on the seven-level structure.  The celebration included a signing ceremony in which President Peter Salovey, Vice Provost for Research Peter Schiffer, members of the building committee, and other campus members wrote their names on the girder that will be hoisted to the apex of the building.  More than 100 faculty members, students, and staff attended the event.
