Topping Out Ceremony

Topping Out

Last night the Television Centre team celebrated the topping out of the Helios. The ceremony featured a traditional Japanese sake-cask breaking ritual and guests were offered sake in ceremonial cups to celebrate the occasion. 

It's been only a year since the team celebrated the ground breaking and in 365 days Television Centre will open to the public with the BBC returning to Studios 1,2 and 3 and Soho House opening a new hotel and members club.  Over 75,000 tons of concrete has been poured so far and 3 million man hours have been spent on the project.

Big thanks to all those involved in the redevelopment so far.
