We recently celebrated an exciting construction milestone - the ‘topping out’ - marking the new building reaching its highest point: the entrance pavilion at just over eight metres.
In recent months the following works have taken place:
Continuation of the facade cladding on Lower Level 2 and installation of the first glazed facades. Cladding is also progressing on Lower Level 1 and the Entry Level
Installation of escalators is underway
Installation of services and internal walls on Lower Level 2, Lower Level 1, and Entry Level
Structural steel erection for the terrace canopies and installation of the spiral stair in the oil tank gallery
Energisation of the site’s power supply
Continuation of the contoured rammed earth wall construction on Lower Level 2
Finishes progressing on Lower Level 4 and Lower Level 3
Demolition and earthworks for the landscaping works in front of the existing Art Gallery building including concrete elements being formed and poured
Dismantling of one of the two site tower cranes, and erection of a final tower crane for the landscaping works in front of the existing Art Gallery building.
