General contractor Brasfield & Gorrie recently celebrated the topping out of the Women’s Sports Program Expansion project at Clemson University. Construction has reached its full height for new and upgraded facilities that will serve lacrosse, gymnastics and rowing teams.

“Teamwork is essential on every construction project, and topping out is our opportunity to celebrate the effort of the many teammates who will carry this project across the finish line, with a special focus on the crews in the field who are there each and every day,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Ben Barfield. “We’re grateful for the collaboration we’ve seen between our team, the trade contractors, Garvin and the design team, and the owner, and we look forward to a strong finish.”
