Just before Christmas, the builder, developer and the entire project team held a ‘topping out’ ceremony.

The topping out of a building is a long-held tradition in the building industry to celebrate when the last beam is placed atop a structure and the construction of the structure is officially complete.

The symbol of raising of a tree onto the roof can be traced back to an ancient Scandinavian religious rite that aimed to appease the tree-dwelling spirits.

The practice remains common in many countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Iceland, Czech Republic and the United States.

It’s a very exciting time for all those who will be joining the Tempo community! What traditions do you think you’ll create in your new home? Let us know in the comments.
