It’s christmas shut down. No sites have had any work since mid December. Some will start tomorrow. Some the week after.

I wondered how they would remove the previous basement without the heritage building up against it falling down. I suppose this type of thing is done everyday all over the world but it fascinates me how it all works. Will they leave the exisiting walls there?

Reinforcements are put in.

Of course it doesn't always work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4KrHSd7H_M

The Frome St awnings aren't a good addition, although it looks like that's a requirement they've been battling with (Government architect wants pedestrian cover, but also wants it to fit with the vertical composition of the building).

Doesn't really look like a 17 metre difference in heights between this and Adelaidean so I wonder how accurate this render is? :?

Yikes.

So it gets to this stage of demolition, then has to go back for planning approval πŸ€” I'm confused, can someone explain to me?

To be honest, I hope this one doesn't happen. Adelaide finally gets a new tallest (sad but true, something we will be judged by) and we get a student accom building built just metres away. For hotel guests and apartment owners facing North, they'll be looking straight at this thing.... built right on our cultural boulevard. Arguably the finest boulevard in the country.

From the report: "The precast will be finished in a Nawkaw product ensuring that its visual appearance is durable and requires no maintenance."

What is Nawkaw?

Not sure why you would use a coating like that when you can tint concrete while making it.
