Topping out ceremony awards – what to give and where to buy

Topping out ceremony awards

We have been supplying Topping Out Ceremony Awards since 1999 when Silvertrophy.com launched its website.  Our sales and engraving teams are passionate about what they do, care about what they make and obsessive when it comes to detail. Always available at the other end of the phone we are here to help make sure your ceremony goes smoothly and the awards look fantastic.

Not only the perfect opportunity for PR to your building project The Topping Out Ceremony is also the way to thank the architects, backers and sponsors who enabled the build to be successful.

Traditionally the event comes from the Builders Rite where the last beam (or its equivalent) is put in place.  It does not represent the finish of the built but that the last stage of the essential structure is in place, and is still upheld today in many places.

In history the ceremony seems to originate in Scandinavia with an old rite of placing a tree on top of a new building, a toast made and builders treated to a special meal.

At Silvertrophy.com we produce awards for this special event for many construction companies around the world. Often Silver Salver trays are purchased for sponsors, engineers & interns that are presented at the event, having a number of fine awards presented adds focus to the ceremony.  One of our really special awards chosen for ‘Topping Out’ events are our Silver Plated Trowels.  Supplied in a fine wooden gift case, these trowels are hand made in the UK and are perfect for engraving the details of the build, the owners and sponsors’ logos can all go on the mirror polished silver trowels.

We also produce a nickel-plated version, again mirror polished and perfect for engraving.

While plaques and celebratory notices left in the building are excellent, topping out awards like the Silver Trowel or Silver Salvers are prized reminders of the achievement which are displayed at the office and make excellent talking points with new clients.  For other companies, teams and interns involved in a large build we find that our clients like to give engraved silver salvers, these traditional plate shaped awards can be made from Steel, Nickel or Silver depending on budget and are excellent for engraving names, companies and logos. All made in the UK, each is mirror polished and has a presentation box or case available.
