what slippery pavers? Council recently spent millions ripping them up to lay down nice smooth non-slip asphalt so they could return the speed limit back to 50 :wink:
Did they actually come up? I don't remember the road being closed for that level of work. I thought they just covered them over with 'a special coating' (i.e. a smear of asphalt) as a temporary solution?

After the special solution failed they changed it to asphalt. The speed limit is now 30

They did all of the work at night to avoid attention. There are no pavers underneath the bitumen anymore.

As for the road closure, it is possibly due to underground cabling for the new building as the side street (Clarendon St) is also closed all week for this.

Otherwise they will be paving the rest of the sidewalk from the existing work all the way down to Morphett soon, but not sure why they would need to close off the street for this.

I found out this morning from the council that Hindley street will be closed off from Morphett street to West terrace
both saturday and sunday.

Ben was correct, the closures are for a crane going up.

Interestingly* "sidewalk" is the technically correct (best kind of correct! ;) ) term.

A footpath, is a path for pedestrians.
A sidewalk is a footpath at the side of a road.

We tend to use footpath in all situations, where as Americans tend to use sidewalk to mean "by a road" but then erroneously use sidewalk to refer to other footpaths.

(* well I found it interesting, shut up)
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

The overall depth of this site really doesn't seem to represent the size of the hall in the renders...

The picture doesn't show the depth as they have poured the first floor. It goes much deeper underneath.

Hindley St was closed again this weekend so a mobile crane can park on the roadway to lift in some white steel beams to form part of the sloping roof. These beams are shown laying flat on the ground in Normans's picture above. No doubt there will be more weekend closures.

The Great Hall will now be known as Pridham Hall, after Andrew Pridham donated a cool $5m towards the building.

The state government has also announced $1m for new scholarships, one for an elite athlete and one for a high-achieving Indigenous student (Goodes O'Loughlin Scholarship).

Sydney Swans chairman Andrew Pridham gifts $5 million to UniSA
Oct 29 2016 at 12:00 AM
by Robert Harley

Investment banker and Sydney Swans chairman Andrew Pridham has donated $5 million to his alma mater, UniSA, to fund a major sports and graduation building in the centre of Adelaide to be named Pridham Hall.

The gift, the largest single private donation in the university's 25-year history, encouraged the South Australian government to chip in another $1 million for two UniSA perpetual scholarships, one for elite athletes and the other, the Goodes O'Loughlin UniSA GO Scholarship, for outstanding academic merit by high-achieving Aboriginal students.

Mr Pridham said he was keen to do "something significant" to acknowledge his education at UniSA and his family's 167-year history in South Australia.

"Normally the Pridham Foundation tries to do things anonymously, but occasionally it is good to do something public," he said.

"I can only hope that our donation can serve as an inspiration for others who are fortunate enough to have the capacity to give back to any cause or community organisation that they feel passionate about."

UniSA vice chancellor Professor David Lloyd said Mr Pridham was "a fantastic example of everything we hope a UniSA graduate should be – he is enterprising, has used all of his talents to their utmost, and is always mindful of how he can use his success to make a positive difference to others".

Mr Pridham decided, as a 17 year old, against studying law and enrolled in the South Australian Institute of Technology's degree in property.

"Without the education I received at UniSA it is unlikely that I would have had the career success that I have been lucky enough to enjoy," Mr Pridham said.

He said the course, which focussed on the investment aspects of property as much as the bricks and mortar, and produced other property luminaries like Stockland chief executive Mark Steinert, was "some five to 10 years ahead of any other tertiary course in real estate in the world at that time".

From the Adelaide office of global real estate group JLL, Mr Pridham went on to become the global head of real estate for UBS, the executive chairman in Australia for JP Morgan and now the chief executive of Moelis & Company Australia.

The new Pridham Hall, now under construction in Hindley Street, will have state-of-the-art sporting facilities, including a gym, courts, and a 25-metre pool, and a 3000-seat graduations hall.

"Great educational institutions help develop people," Mr Pridham said. "They help people achieve their full potential ... and great universities are created by great people.

"Great buildings and infrastructure play a vital role in lifting the spirit, developing confidence and pride in people, inspiring – creating mood, framing attitudes and defining atmosphere and culture."

South Australian premier Jay Weatherill said Mr Pridham's "amazing gift to UniSA's iconic new hall was an inspiration for us to partner in this investment".

The upgrade of Hindley Street between the University and Morphett Street has gone out to tender, and will start construction in a few weeks. Construction is estimated to take 20 weeks.
