Topping Off

The symbolic step in construction when the highest point of the shell or frame of the building is reached. It is not the completion of construction at that elevation, but the beginning of it. Generally Topping Off does not have any legal, permitting or contractual significance, rather it is often used by the marketing campaign to attract attention to the project by holding a ceremony at the project. Thus it is comparable to laying the Cornerstone to a project where a timecapsule is often placed in the construction.
