Construction on the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary’s new Welcome Center is moving along rapidly now as the structure recently topped out and brick has arrived at the site. We stopped by the construction site just after groundbreaking last July and spotted several renderings on the construction fence. So far, the building looks pretty close, but its still just a steel skeleton.
An official topping out ceremony was held November 4th at the school. Students and faculty had a chance to sign the structural steel of the 27-foot-diameter dome before it was lifted to its current position. The structure, along with a new gate house and entrance tower on Lexington Road, was designed by Steed Hammond Paul Architecture of Cincinnati and is scheduled to open next Spring.
