[U/C] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

What is being placed between the concrete gaps? And is there a finish/gloss to the concrete itself? Can't tell from the renders, but it looks like the space between the glazing at each level could be either stone or metal cladding. Either way, the renders don't show the glazing running full height.

I see that post-tensioning is being used for the slabs on this building.

That picture really sums up the Australian taxation office. They would have to be one of the most hopeless organisations in the history of the world.
To be fair, it's more likely to be the landlord's responsibility than the ATO's.

I can't help but notice how slender the columns look, particularly one on the receiving end of a column load offset - that would be imposing some significant bending forces on the column.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

They are barely 10 years in service, but several A380 planes are already up for scrapping. Singapore Airlines recently got rid of a couple, and other airlines may follow suit. The airlines are more in favour of the smaller and more energy efficient 787 Dreamliners and A350s. It will be interesting t...

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

I've never understood how core rises actually work, so perhaps someone can explain... How does the corrugated iron box at the top lift itself every time the concrete has been poured on a new level? Because often I see cores rise but they don't remove the box it just rises... The core walls at each ...

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

I think there are four elevator shafts in the core from the plans I remember seeing somewhere - two next to each other in the south western corner of the core, and two on opposite sides of the corridor on the northern side. Two elevators running full height, and two run only to about level 20 or so....

The sequence of photos (thanks!) clearly shows that the excavators at the back have been removing piles which look to have been created fairly recently. Has anybody found out why? Were they necessary to shore up something until something else happened, and now they are in the way? Hi there, the pil...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

The project is only at concept design stage, so the proposal could still change. It does appear the only elevated section of the new motorway section is the overpass over Regency Road - the rest of the motorway looks to be at grade including where it connects to the South Road Motorway.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Its been reported in the news tonight that cracks have already occurred in the concrete that is part of the extension. The state government says its nothing to worry about. What does everyone think? Nothing unusual - concrete often does have surface cracking when it cures. Small surface cracks aren...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

The 281 is about the only existing non-OBahn route that could benefit from the new tunnel. W90 could potentially as well, but that would require rerouting through narrow College Park streets to reach the existing Sixth Avenue stops (and skipping the Harrow Road stops), which isn't likely. The other ...

Probably the same manner in which they open lower levels of skyscrapers in other parts of the world, while work continues on upper levels? Sorry if my original comment wasn't clear. I'd say that's more of a logistical thing. What I meant was how is the existing structure going to take the new dead ...
