Topping Out Ceremony – Finance House, Bournemouth

Finance House

We recently held a Topping Out Ceremony at our Finance House development in Bournemouth. The ceremony was arranged to celebrate the last beam being placed at the top of the building and the overall completion of the building shell.

Due to be completed in August 2015, the project includes the demolition of an existing eight storey reinforced concrete frame office building and garage lock up, and the erection of a new higher education facility comprising 2966m2 of academic space together with 392 student accommodation units.
