The signed ISC steel beam is lowered into place

Less than nine months after the official groundbreaking, University of Massachusetts Boston Chancellor J. Keith Motley marked a milestone in the construction phase of the $155 million Integrated Sciences Complex (ISC) with a topping off ceremony. The topping off of a construction project is a ceremonial event marking the end of steel construction by putting into place a final, signed beam. 

The six-story building is set to open in fall 2014 at the entrance of the Columbia Point campus and will house state-of-the-art research, teaching, and training laboratories. 

“This building is going to be completed before we know it, so it’s great to have this opportunity to pause and recognize the effort of everyone involved,” said Chancellor Motley.
