Topping out for Gesamtschule Rheinbach comprehensive school at its Villeneuver Straße and Dederichsgraben sites
18. July 2018
The topping out ceremony is a ubiquitous celebration in Germany to mark the completion of a building’s structure. There was much admiration for adherence to budget and schedule as well as the professional handling of challenges that arose by everyone concerned in construction during school operation. The celebration took place with Mayor Stefan Raetz, First Assistant Secretary Dr. Raphael Knauber, District Councillor Silke Josten-Schneider (CDU), Party Chairperson Martina Koch (SPD), youth school sports head Wolfgang Rösner, headmistress Elke Dietrich-Rein, school board chairman Dietmar Danz, construction department head Matthias Swoboda, and the planners attending. Workers from Barth Bedachungen GmbH held the topping out speech before the ceremonial dinner.
