Video: Topping Out Ceremony, Brock School of Business
A ceremony dating back 700 years, originating in Europe, was recognized at Samford’s new Brock School of Business building construction site. Hoar Construction held a ‘Topping Out Ceremony’ raising the final beam to the highest point in the building’s construction in front of Samford officials, Brock faculty and staff, and Harry B. Brock himself. In fact, Mr. Brock was able to add his signature to the final beam that will reside in the new business building forever.
The new Brock School of Business Building represents an investment in the development of professional and ethical business leaders in our communities and across the world. The new home to the business school is scheduled to open for the fall semester of 2015.
