Photos: Berkshire Innovation Center beam ceremony


Berkshire Innovation Center board members, construction workers and elected representatives were in attendance at a "topping off" ceremony at the construction site held to symbolize the installation of the building's final steel beam. Attendees signed the beam before it was hoisted into place. The placement of an evergreen tree on the beam is part of an ancient construction tradition and will remain in place until all of the construction is complete.
