The Icon Above Ground LevelConstruction Update - October 2014 - Published October 2014
A significant milestone has been achieved with the Ground Floor structure concrete pour completed, and even since last week's photos were taken, the project has moved very quickly above ground phase.
Five subterranean basements are now completed which will provide car parking to our facility. This has allowed for the services infrastructure to commence, which has led to mains connections. Sewer, Water and Gas connections are well underway, with Power and Communications planned for the not too distant future.
The most significant portion of this phase of the project has been the concrete laying to the ground level. This has capped our basements and provided structural transitions for the upper floors.
Our construction staging works have led to the incorporation of a footpath protection gantry, which will not only provide public protections, but also house the perimeter scaffold to provide edge and fall protection for our employees. This will all lead us into the next important phase of the project with the commencement of the structure to the Apartment Levels and will now make the project visible from street level.
