The final bucket of concrete on the $650-million Belfer Research Building in Manhattan was lifted on Nov. 28, and the 19-story project was officially topped out. Principals of owner Weill Cornell Medical College, professionals from construction manager AECOM’s Tishman Construction Corp., New York, and hundreds of construction trade workers celebrated the topping out of the new building, a state-of-the-art facility that will more than double the medical college’s existing research space when it opens its doors in 2014. The 480,000-sq-ft building will include 16 program areas and state-of-the-art laboratories.
