July 2014 update: On the Western portion of the project (zone 1), the New Business School has reached the top. The installation of the façade has also commenced to the Western elevation of the building (zone 1). The remainder of the structure (zone 2 & 3) will continue to progress in a formwork, reinforcement tying and concrete pour cycle, with scaffolding with shade cloth being erected one level ahead of the permanent works, assisting to preserve the privacy of our neighbours. Earthworks are soon to be completed on the Abercrombie Student Accommodation (ASA) project. By the start of Semester 2 the project should have reached a regular cycle of formwork, reinforcement tying and concrete pours with the aim to complete all major pours by November 2014. The primary means of deliveries will be via the Work Zone on Abercrombie Street with deliveries being unloaded by the site tower crane.
