Height of tower: 218 m
Number of storeys: 60 storeys
Purpose: 636 high specification bedroom apartments
The irregular-shaped concrete core comprises 500 mm walls on the lower floors reducing to relatively thin 225 mm walls as the building grows in height. The change in wall thickness coupled with irregular angles rendered the real challenge of the structure. Developing a strict yet consistent pour and jump cycle was critical to enable the subsequent steel, intermediate flooring and cladding operations to commence.
Careful coordination was also required to ensure the scheduled cycle time of 5.5 days was achieved on the core. Optimising resources and productivity were essential to keep the project on track.
“We chose to work with PERI because of their commercial offer, both technically and financially. The main benefit for us is that we were able to achieve the cycle times that were initially set for the core.”
