Plaza House, the centrepiece of the Admiral Park development, has now reached its peak height, with completion of the £40m building expected this time next year.
Rihoy & Son, the main contractor, invited various stakeholders to an official topping out ceremony of the six-storey, 67,000 square foot building yesterday afternoon.
Among the group were architects, engineers, surveyors, and other stalwarts from the local construction industry to inspect the progress of the final piece in the Admiral Park puzzle.
They had a chance to tour the site while learning of the innovative construction methods and design, which is set to match the leading industry standards for sustainability and energy efficiency through the BREEAM scale.
It will be the first to achieve that full accreditation, with an anticipated rating of “very good”.
That means it's designed to meet the highest standards of modern office environments, coupled with panoramic views of Belle Greve Bay.
Celebratory drinks and canapes were served at the adjacent restaurant.

Rihoy & Son Chair, Gavin Rihoy said the total spend on the Admiral Park site is expected to total £80m for the offices, restaurant, and hotel. Another £10m was spent constructing the multi-storey car park, with the possibility of extending it in the future directly to the rear of Plaza House.
He praised the Jersey-based developer Comprop for committing investment into the island, redeveloping the area, and boosting the local economy with a steady stream of projects.
Mr Rihoy also drew the groups attention to pre-construction services agreements - which phase out the tender process to give the contractor input into the design stage - as helping to keep all parties mindful of costs and timeframes before full procurement is signed.
He said it has proved successful and should adopted for future projects.
Floors three, four and five of Plaza House have been pre-let to tenants already, along with most of the second floor, according to Watts Property Consultants.
The ground and first floors remain on the market.
The first tenants are expected to move in in the third quarter of 2024.
