Updates between 11th of November and 19th of November

I've been away on holidays for about a month so only now starting to catch up on all the updates that have come in. Below are updates between the 11th and the 19th of November from Bernard. Enjoy!

11 November -
- concrete pumping at the hotel tower (I suspect for columns on the other side of the core)
- formwork around the commercial core. Looks like the columns near George St are extra high, so the building lobby will be very high
- only activity near the res core appears to be at the carpark ramp. You can see a slot in the walls where the ramp slab will be
- formwork build continuing in the podium area


15 November -
- the formwork for the wall just to the right of the hotel core has jacked up a level
- you can see a bit of the hotel tower for slab with the wavy edge just left of the hotel core
- getting ready for the podium 3 (?) level pour north of the commercial core
- pouring the commercial core
- formwork going up around the res core for Basement 1
- carpark access ramp formwork going up
- still working on basement 1 formwork in the podium area
- the crane in the podium area (nearest to camera) has jacked up over the weekend (I saw the tower segments there last week)


17 November -
- nearly ready for another slab pour for the hotel. I wonder if they're going to scaffold externally all the way to the top?
- last part of podium 2 slab looks nearly ready to pour north of the commercial core
- formwork expanding rapidly around the res core, nearly done in the podium area.
- I'm wondering how they're going to build around the loading platform on the Adelaide St boundary. It's outside of the tower footprints, but will get in the way of the podium build, so maybe we'll see part of that removed soon
- the crane in the middle of the site is going to need to be jacked up soon, it's looking pretty low there!


18 November -
- reinforcing etc getting ready for slab pour north of hotel core
- podium 2 slab poured north of commercial core this morning
- part of carpark ramp read of res core poured
- tensioning ducts and reinforcement being placed in podium area for Basement 1 level


19 November -
- slab poured on north side of hotel core
- podium 3 formwork being built between hotel and commercial cores
- res core has climbed a level
- formwork covering the carpark ramp that was poured yesterday
- reinforcing being laid in podium area
