It’s a massive undertaking, for quite possibly one of the largest wooden structures in the country. The Great House at Mahogany Bay Village is an impressive 16,000 sq ft, three story building that will become the hub of the resort. A Top Off Ceremony was held on Thursday, October 1, 2015, for the building.
A top off ceremony is traditionally held when the last beam (or its equivalent) is placed atop a structure during its erection to celebrate a milestone in a construction process. After topping off, numerous elements of construction remain, including interior finish and most mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
