A grea update from Bernard for the past week. Some days off due to Ekka holiday.

14 August -
- hotel: L28 visible on lift core, forming up L25 to SW, L24 has been poured to N
- office: formwork supports going up for southern slab. Not sure how high this one will be, possibly a mezzanine floor, rather than to the same height as the N side of the building (which seems to be double height between the topmost slab that has been poured and the one below)
- res: a lot of the cladding around the climbing formwork on the lift core has been removed. It'll be worth checking the drawings to see if the lift core changes shape at this height


15 August -
Looks like the site is closed today, maybe an extra Ekka holiday for them?

17 August -
- hotel: L25 formwork built to SW, forms for L24 columns being built to N
- office: not much visible progress since last photo. Part of the scaffolding has been removed on the S side, and there's a boom lift, but I can't see what's happening
- res: work with the climbing formwork on the lift core ongoing. Scaffolding being removed from the perimeter
- several crane tower segments are sitting in the podium area, ready to raise one of the cranes
- In this street level shot you can see that they're removing the formwork shutters from the res core. Maybe different ones are going to be used due to different floor spacing?

18 August -
- hotel: reinforcing laid for L25 SW side, formwork up for N side
- office: no visible change
- res: all the formwork shutters have been removed from the res core, the SE end of the first tower slab has been exposed
- it also looks like a new crane support frame has been positioned on top of the podium area. I assume this will serve as a base for the crane currently just beside it, which will allow the holes in the basement & podium slabs to be filled and the fitout of those levels completed while the office tower is being built


Finally here's a great photo from the Victoria Bridge side…
