Disney California Adventures: CARS LAND “Topping Out”

““Topping out” is a traditional construction event among construction workers and engineers that takes place when the highest piece of steel is installed on the frame of a building.

As part of the tradition, the final beam is painted white and signed by the ironworkers, steel design engineer and construction management. This piece of steel will be part of the Pinnacle of the Cadillac Range, representing a 1959 Cadillac, whose tail fin was also known as the Pinnacle.”

There is also a video – from the Disney Resorts Blog … this is actually from last November but the link was buried in the wrong folder …

I had used the phrase ‘topping out’ before but usually just at the buffet restaurant.
