Updates between 5th of June and 10th of June


Here's quite a big update from Bernard for the past week. There are also a couple of bonus photos showing the update on the curved glass of the W hotel building and a photo from me showing the workers from up above looking along North Quay.

6 June -
- slab poured on the hotel tower (7th since the thick slab, a bit over a dozen more floors to go, IIRC)
- not much visible activity on the commercial tower since the slab was poured
- formwork build continuing West of the res core, reinforcing being laid to the east
- the formwork in the middle of the podium area has six clearly visible slots for cast-in beams. Looks like a very large load transfer beam will be sitting atop the the large columns south of the commercial core


7 June -
- next level of formwork going up on the hotel tower
- another level of glazing has been added on the Ann St frontage of the hotel
- scaffolding has been removed from the south-western side of the hotel (just looked​ back through the photos, this happened at the beginning of June, but I've just noticed​ it!)
- formwork has nearly been finished West of the res core, just a little bit on the North Quay side between the res and hotel towers
- formwork is being place for a rounded triangle of walls just south of the hotel tower - I think this was a large skylight on the drawings
- reinforcing and post-tensioning ducts being placed in the podium area

Cranes shooting rainbows over Brisbane


Not exactly to do with 300 George Street but I thought that I'd share this photo I took this afternoon of a rainbow lining up exactly over a construction crane over at Southbank. Makes it look like the rainbow is being shot right out of the crane!
