Gilbane Building Company Celebrates the topping out of the Legacy at Brier Creek Project

The Class A office building is located in a thriving area of Raleigh/Durham

Durham, NC – March 2017 – The Legacy at Brier Creek office building celebrated a significant construction milestone: placement of the final steel beam atop the 121,000-square-foot office building. Gilbane Building Company marked the completion of the steel framework with the traditional ceremony of raising the final beam. The beam, which was signed by those in attendance, featured both an evergreen tree and an American flag.  The project team along with the developer Heritage Properties, broker Colliers International, Fluhrer Reed, JDavis Architects, Lighthouse Engineering and McAdams were on hand along with members of the local industry trades.
