[COM] Re: Adelaide Convention Centre - Stage 3 | $350m

I believe zinc does develop a patina, but to what extent would depend on how it's been treated. Zinc Oxide is a dirty white / grey colour. Not as interesting as Copper Carbonate's green. But yes, the result depends on the treatment. (Chemistry question: why does copper tend to 'carbonise' rather th...

[COM] Re: #PRO: Uni of Adelaide - Medical School - 13lvl- $120 mil

has there been an announcement where the Adelaide railway yard control centre will go? I think Dry Creek Depot was built with space for a rail control centre, that is the most likely outcome. The TAOC building at Dry Creek was constructed with sufficient room to house signaling control equipment & ...

It's an impressive sight to behold too, having four Favco's up will look unreal.
might just be two favco's(310/380D) and two J600.24 hammerheads.

Two hammerheads will cover the whole site from North tce to Festival Drive/Rowing sheds.

FlindUni never had a tower crane, it had a 70t Lima crawer to start with, now there is what looks like a 100t pinjib up there. The medical centre still has it's tower crane.
