Devon celebrates topping out tower 

On Sept. 21, Devon officials
joined with construction
workers who are building the Devon Energy Center for a topping-out
ceremony.
The ceremonial final steel beam and a small tree were hoisted up to the
top of
the 50-story structure by one of the large cranes that have been a
fixture on the
skyline for more than a year.

Standing on the 10th floor of the
company’s parking garage in the shadow of the tower, Executive Chairman Larry
Nichols thanked the 1,200 workers who have braved Oklahoma’s extreme heat and
cold since 2009 to make the tower and adjoining buildings a reality.
