Pilsdon Celebrates Success at Topping Out Ceremony

The professionalism, creativity and generosity of the construction industry was shown at its best this week when the Pilsdon Community project celebrated their Topping Out ceremony.

The need

The project, which involves converting an existing stable block into short-term accommodation for people who have been sleeping rough, is collaboration between CRASH Patron partners EC Harris and BAM.

How patrons helped

EC Harris has undertaken a huge amount of pro bono work on this project as well as donating £15,000 towards the funding as part of the company’s Legacy Project. BAM is tapping into its supply chain to secure materials free of charge or at greatly reduced rates and the two companies have brought in Arup and NVB Architects to assist on the project.

The social impact

The sun shone as Pilsdon’s Dilys Hunt secured a number of roof tiles with a ceremonial hammer marking the Topping Out.

The event also served as a celebration of the successful partnership between the whole team and a thank you to the workforce and projects team for their part in the construction process.
