beam signing hospital

Everyone is invited to leave their mark on the replacement Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital by signing well wishes on the final support beam before it is put in place during a topping-out ceremony. This construction milestone will happen Friday, Jan. 25, unless there are high winds or icy conditions.

During the week leading up to the topping-out ceremony, the beam will be available to sign at the southwest construction entrance off 28th Street, next to the hospital’s south entrance. Dates and times that it will be available are Monday, Jan. 21, through Thursday, Jan. 24, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday, Jan. 25, 7 to 11 a.m.

At 11 a.m. on Jan. 25, the Skanska USA Building team will host a meet-and-greet with refreshments in the hospital’s Education Conference Room. Shortly before noon, the group will move to the south entrance to watch the final beam be put in place. While it is difficult to pin down the exact beginnings of this construction tradition, most agree that it symbolizes good luck for future occupants, continued growth and a safe workplace.
