Duke chiller project celebrates Topping Out

On July 24, a “Topping Out” ceremony was held for the Chilled Water Plant 3 project underway at Duke University. In construction, Topping Out ceremonies are held to mark placement of the last beam at the top of a structure.

LeChase is construction manager for  the plant, which will deliver additional chilled water for cooling campus buildings. The first phase of the project should be complete by next summer.
