Concrete pumping on the weekend
I took a couple of these photos last weekend. One of the lanes on the North Quay side was blocked off to traffic with concrete trucks arriving and a concrete pumping boom set up.
Updates between 13th June and 17th of June
All four of the major sub-sites are rolling full steam ahead. Check out the more detailed updates from Bernard below.
Cement trucks working over the weekend
I noticed this weekend that the cement trucks were making deliveries. At least on Saturday work was continuing. Hopefully this doesn't mean they're running behind and having to catch up on weekends.
Cement trucks were making last minute deliveries before ANZAC Day
ANZAC Day was a day off onsite with most of the roads around the construction closed to traffic, but there were cement trucks making deliveries the day before.
Column rebar truck delivery
Walked past this truck waiting to offload its delivery at the site. Looks like steel bars to reinforce all the column supports being poured.
Updates between 29th February and 5th of March
There was quite steady progress at the site over the past week. The lift cores getting higher and higher every day and more formwork and pouring of concrete. Check out the more detailed updates from Bernard below.
Concrete pumping on the weekend and a new water tower
There were concrete trucks arriving over the weekend at the site. One of the lanes of North Quay was blocked off for a time as well.
Time lapse of the site between February 4 and 5 2016
Here's another time lapse from Bernard showing the pour for the Basement 6 slab in the North-West corner, and the pour of the residential tower foundation.
Peek inside the site and more concrete is pumping
Here are a couple of updates from Geoff and Bernard and myself. First Geoff was kind enough to send in some photos from inside the site, have a look it's good to get a perspective from the inside.
There's vertical movement on the hotel lift core and lots of concrete being poured
Lots of updates this week. Also starting this week I am going to be trying to consolidate updates more rather than posting daily statuses. Thanks to Bernard for the updates and all the photos!
A flood of updates this week, including DA changes to the site
There has been a flood of updates towards the end of the week with photos and information sent in by long time readers Geoff, Bernard and Steve. One of the things I missed earlier this month is that there is a Slight Update for 300 George Street & W Hotel DA. On the most part it looks like the number of larger units was decreased in favour of two bedroom apartments. Additional roofing has been added and car parking spaces have been increased.
Concrete, concrete everywhere
Just as predicted lots of concrete was poured in since the last update. The site is really starting to transform now from an excavation to a full blown construction.
Residential tower lift core concrete slab being poured in
The concrete slab around the residential tower has finally started to be poured in place. At a distance it doesn't look like a huge area, but zooming in you can see how deep some of the parts actually are and that will all require filling in.
Floor slab around the hotel lift core completed
Here's another excellent update from Bernard. The floor slab around the hotel lift core is finished, this is where it looks like most of the progress has been made on the site.
More concrete, more crane sections, more progress
Thanks again to Bernard for sending this update in. The vantage point in this photo is really quite amazing and the progress is very visible from day to day now.
More concrete being poured in
I've got another update from Bernard a couple of days ago but didn't have time to put it up until now. You can definitely see the progress in this new photo that he's sent in. There are new floor slabs that have been poured in place and more.
