COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Construction workers are set to begin the next phase of building the Darla Moore School of Business on the campus of the University of South Carolina.

The new building is the biggest and most expensive project in the university's history.

On Monday, students, school and government officials held a topping-out ceremony to celebrate the start of the next phase.

Crews hoisted a beam signed by workers, students, and staff to the top of the structure.

The next phase of the work will focus on putting up walls.

The building will cost the university more than $100 million. It's supposed to be ready by December.
