Yesterday the UAB Collat School of Business had a signing party for alumni, instructors and current students at the existing School of Business. We provided one of the beams at the penthouse level and painted it UAB ‘green’, put our emblems on it as well as the UAB emblems and assisted Brasfield & Gorrie putting their emblem on it.
The UAB representatives and B&G’s project team were blown away. They couldn’t say enough good things about the appearance of the beam and the stand that was built to hold the beam. Cecil and his guys did a wonderful job with the beam and joey with the stand and it was recognized by all parties. This was a good day for Garrison Steel! .
UAB Collat School of Business students, alumni, faculty and staff are invited to leave their mark on the school's new building at the Collat Beam Signing Event on Thursday, July 20th.
Event Time: 1-2 p.m.
