Houston, Texas – Manhattan Construction Company held a “Topping Out” ceremony this week for The University of Houston Stadium project. The ceremony marks the construction milestone of placing the upper most pieces of steel on the stadium’s structure. The event was held on October 28, 2013 at the project site where the steel beams were painted ‘Cougar Red’ and were signed University alumni, supporters and students.
