Topping Off Ceremony
For the first time, it felt real.
For all the talk about the 16 Tech Innovation District and what it aspired to embody, we finally saw the structure of our new office and the first building in 16 Tech complete.
The IBRI team had the opportunity in June 2019 to sign one of the 10-foot-long ceremonial steel beams that was placed atop the five-story building July 11. Our names joined those of our partners, our community members and the men and women who designed and are building our new home.
We watched in awe as crane operators hoisted and construction workers welded the beams in place. It was a momentous occasion celebrated by our soon-to-be neighbors in Building 1 including the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership and IU School of Medicine, as well as leaders from 16 Tech, Browning Davis and other contractors.
We eagerly await the day in May 2020 when we will receive the keys and look forward to being fully settled in by fall 2020.
