Updates between 9th of October and 13th of October

Here's an update from Bernard for the past week…

9 October -
Well, the mystery of the extra climbing formwork sections has been solved - it looks like the southern wall of the office tower will be a poured-in-place structural concrete wall.

- Hotel: L31 formwork & reinforcing. More cladding mounting brackets attached to E wall
- Office: climbing formwork constructed on S wall, formwork & reinforcing for walls S of lift core.
- Res: more materials stockpiled on slab, but no obvious progress
- pedestrian walkway has been removed from SE corner, and looks like the ground level slab is done there (part of it is black?)

11 October -
- hotel: L31 precast walls up, formwork going up for L32
- office: formwork still being installed S of core
- soil for garden being placed at corner of Adelaide & North Quay. Lots of the exterior concrete face have been painted black in that area

October fog blankets the site

Not much visibility this morning with the heavy fog blanketing Brisbane. Top of the W Hotel tower construction is right in the heavy part of it.

Updates between 2nd of October and 6th of October

A short update from Bernard for the past week…

3 October -
- hotel: L34 just peeking out from under the climbing form. This may be as high as this goes. Glazing complete on North (Ann St) facade up to L23. Looks like the concrete walls facing into the site are just being painted, no cladding.
- office: more scaffolding and formwork S of the lift core than two weeks ago, but not much other progress visible, apart from the safety fencing going up around the perimeter that will climb with the main floor plate construction.
- res: no obvious changes over the last fortnight
- I notice a 'lid' has been placed over the large skylight opening between the hotel & res towers to keep the weather out.
