College of Technology Building Reaches Milestone

HOUSTON – Officials from the University of Houston, Tellepsen Builders and Fort Bend County will be on hand to celebrate the topping out of the new UH College of Technology building at UH Sugar Land.

The event takes place 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, at the building site, 14000 University Blvd., Sugar Land, 77479. A tour of the first floor of the building will also take place.

The act of topping out a building is a construction industry practice to indicate the last beam has been placed. Often a tree will be placed on top of the new structure, a tradition that can be traced to early Scandinavian practices. 

In March 2018, UH broke ground on the new three-story, 100,000-sq.-ft. building, which will house programs from the College of Technology, including 10 state-of-the-art labs, classroom space and a sandwich shop. The building is scheduled to open its doors in fall 2019.

WHAT:  Topping Out Ceremony for UH College of Technology building

WHEN: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26

WHERE: On the campus of UH Sugar Land, 14000 University Blvd. Sugar Land, TX 77479
