From when I walked past last week, no piling had commenced for service cores yet. I see they are using rammed piles, which tells a lot about the soil structure on site (might be close to a water table, or soil has a high moisture content. Usually once all of the piles are driven (which I don't believe is the case here) a raft slab is pored, then services commence on top.

Given the size of the site, and the fact there's basement levels i'd be stunned if there isn't multiple tower cranes used.
Interesting if that was the reasoning behind the rammed piles. I was wondering why they had done this, and not used more screw drilling like with the external walls.

There is an underground "water stream" that flows south to north through this area. If you look at the side wall of the old 2 storey building on the corner of Pulteney & Wakefield Streets you will see a very large crack on the wall facing Wakefield Street. Its caused by this same flow. The fire station used to also have issues with their underground carpark too. Plus I have heard the lift wells in the new police building apparently fill with water.

Ben I think was referring to the carpark on the south side of Angas Street, not the hospital itself. I believe the carpark won't have a crane, but the hospital is due to have 2-3 fixed cranes during construction.

This has a fairly big footprint. Will be interesting to see how many fixed cranes go up.

Wow! It's been a while since I have seen the renders, I had forgotten how "big" this building will be.

Hopefully Solea just down the road sells quickly, really activating the apartment market around Hurtle Square/south east CBD!

That looks like a three or four crane job, not two. Massive site and development.

Crane base installed on the south-western corner of the site, they'll definitely need a second crane on the eastern end of the site but I can't see them needing more than two... The overall footprint of the site is reasonably similar to the two university buildings on North Terrace.

It was being concreted in today. Possible the crane will go up this weekend then?

This is a massive job. Honestly, I think this building design looks so much nicer than the RAH.

I'm slightly confused... This building is taller than the neighbouring Police HQ and yet the crane's height only comes up to the height of the neighbouring building and so far as I could see there isn't the components for it to be a climbing crane...

Adding a climbing collar after is common place.
Walking on over....
