EAST HARTFORD, Connecticut – Research Center employees celebrated the completion of steel work on UTRC's new laboratory building in East Hartford at a "topping off" ceremony, Thursday, March 24.
During the ceremony -- which is also known as "topping out" -- ironworkers raised and installed the final steel beam as employees looked on. Hundreds of employees had signed the beam earlier in the week.
Once completed early next year, the new facility in East Hartford will significantly expand the company's research capabilities in the areas of intelligent systems, advanced materials and manufacturing, and revolutionary propulsion and power technologies.
