In November, the DPR project team at the Ronald McDonald House at Nemours Children’s Hospital celebrated with a traditional topping out ceremony. The ceremony marks the occasion where the team raises the final beam in place, signifying the completion of vertical construction.

More than 80 guests including design team members, crews, Nemours Children’s Hospital staff, and Ronald McDonald House staff and board of directors enjoyed a BBQ lunch and ceremonial raising of the beam.

Known as “The House That Love Built,” the final beam raised included numerous signatures from project team members, as well as hundreds of paper hearts signed with messages of encouragement from community supporters. 

Project completion is scheduled for Spring 2016.
