Work is back on after the Australia Day long weekend

I've got this update from Bernard, looks like the progress is nice and steady at the site. Good to see workers back in action after a 4 day long weekend!
- red crane tower section has been positioned on the footing that's being prepared for pouring behind the loading platform on the south side (this happened today, I took a photo this morning with it lying on its side against the west wall)
- more formwork has been built over the last few days in the NW corner. You can see some slab edge forms, and a few set downs where the slab is thicker around support columns.
- more column foundation pits have been dug in a line running across the centre of the site to the South wall near the new crane base
- excavation for the foundation of the large circular column at the SE end of the res tower has begun, but it looks like they've decided to drill around that to reduce vibration affecting nearby works/structures
- the formwork for last week's concrete pour in the res tower lift pit has been removed, with new formwork going up for the next part of the walls for that. Looks like they're going to either leave a void or backfill with dirt/rock, now that they've got a solid foundation in place.
