On Tuesday 28th June at about 4pm, the weather turned from a beautiful sunny day to cold and rainy. Luckily this did not deter the guests invited to attend Building 4 of the Jersey International Finance Centre topping out ceremony.
Number 4 is the first of 6 office buildings of Phase 1 of the Esplanade Quarter development, which will also include 520 underground parking spaces plus a public park and square.
Invited guests included representatives from both secured tenants; BNP Paribas and UBS, States Members as well as the team involved with the design, construction and development.
The Customary tradition of the topping out ceremony marks an important milestone in the construction of a building bringing together all parties involved. The ceremony is traditionally believed to bring good luck to a building.
