Concrete pumping on the weekendI 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.
Cement trucks working over the weekendI 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.
Column rebar truck deliveryWalked 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 MarchThere 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.
Peek inside the site and more concrete is pumpingHere 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.
A flood of updates this week, including DA changes to the siteThere 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 everywhereJust 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 inThe 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 completedHere'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 being poured inI'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.
