Carpenters Union 'tops off' new HQ

As reported in the Boston Business Journal:

The New England Regional Council of Carpenters held a ceremony with Suffolk Construction Co. Inc. to place the last beam of steel on its new headquarters.

The “topping off” as it is called, was held in Dorchester where the 75,000-square-foot facility is being constructed. The carpenters are converting an abandoned two-story industrial building next to Interstate 93 into a trade school that will train 2,000 students a year. The building will also house union offices, a bank and an eye care center for union members.

Those in attendance included council officials and the contractor, Suffolk Construction, as well as the architect, ADD Inc., and engineers RDK Engineers and Goldstein-Milano Structural Engineering and trade workers.

The New England Regional Council of Carpenters has been looking for a site to accommodate a new headquarters for the past decade. The building is scheduled for completion in January.

The story was also covered in Building Design and Construction.
