Block B now rising rapidly. If you look close enough you will see the first cladding panel installed on this western elevation. You may also notice that we have installed a lift hoist on the flank of the building which is suitable for both men and materials. This helps assist with speedy access into and around the site.

Photo of the cantilever steels with the decking installed for the flooring above. Once construction reaches level 8 on all floors, the steels can be removed as the cantilever becomes self-supporting. We have circled one of the Macalloy bars in red – these bars going through the entire building to basement level and are secured into the piling system in order to hold the weight of the cantilever sections.
