Live Streaming A “Topping Out” Ceremony

We were recently involved in a “Topping Out” ceremony in central London.

‘But what is a topping out ceremony?’ I hear you say!

With roots stretching back to the Dark Ages, a “Topping Out” ceremony celebrates the project milestone of putting the last structural steel beam or final roofing piece on a building.

Our clients marked the occasion by hosting a “Topping Out” event, during which they placed the final piece of concrete onto the roof themselves.

The Event

To capture the moment, we provided a high definition LED screen, staging area and camera so that we could stream the moment down to a presentation room 16 floors below the roof (see below image).

In order to achieve a clear and crisp image for onlookers, we used a fibre optic cable, which we fed through the ventilation system of the building and connected up to the presentation room.

We love being involved in quirky events just like this one – get in touch today if we can help with your event production.
