The Scoop: Topping Off at Station Row
Topping Off Ceremony
On December 14th, a Topping Off Ceremony was held on the site of the Station Row (previously known as The Commons at Providence Station) project. The event was planned to commemorate the near-completion of the wood frame of the building. At the event, a roof truss was presented and signed by many members of the workforce, including Carpenters, Electricians, Plumbers and Laborers. The day focused on all the men and women who have worked on this project and celebrated their many hours of work and collaboration. In this spirit, speeches given by John Tocci, Sr. and Peter Mahoney, Corcoran Management, addressed all those present and acknowledged their efforts and teamwork in bringing this project to this important milestone. This appreciation was bolstered with a buffet lunch and commemorative shirts custom printed for the occasion.
Kudos to all from Business Development, Marketing and the Field who made this event a success!
