Project management update
What has been happening with the project?
Pre-cast walls to the eastern tower have been installed on western and northern boundaries up to Level 1. Blockwork walls to the commercial suite and lobby of the eastern tower are complete and formwork is 80% complete for the level 1 slab with the pour expected this side of Christmas. On the western tower side of the site there are few remaining pile caps which are currently being formed up and poured to complete the footing structure for this tower to commence. The same approach to the ground slab will be used and the structure will begin with the pour of level 1.
What needs to happen to finish this stage of construction?
Alterations are being made to the volume of the fire storage tanks which has warranted some minor ground floor design changes that will be fulfilled retrospectively. This is not affecting critical path and the contractor will focus on service coordination and the target program for completing the structure going up. Rounding out this stage will see more precast panels delivered for installation to ground level of the western tower and the pour of the level 1 slab on east tower, shortly followed by the west tower.
What will happen next?
The structural cycle will continue for the next 6 months seeing a concrete slab on either tower being completed approximately every 21 days. It is estimated that both structures will be completed by August 2017. Works will continue on the commercial shopfront on the east tower with entry ramps and steps being formed up and poured. Works to make the water connection will likely occur in the next month however these are not the critical path.
