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


8 June -
- formwork complete on top of hotel, ready for reinforcing to be laid
- formwork almost complete around res tower (still a few bits to cover with formply)
- reinforcing & post-tensioning ducts placed east of res core and in central part of podium area
- scaffolding from ground level being dismantled in North East corner on George St frontage. I'll try to get a pic from ground level
- glazing on Ann St hotel facade is up to the level above the thick slab now


9 June -
- reinforcing done ready to pour on the SW side of the hotel tower
- more windows being installed on the Ann St side
- still laying the last bits of formply West of the res core, and reinforcing to the east
- the deep cast-in beams in the podium area were poured this morning, I presume the slab will be done either tomorrow or next week
