Construction has kicked off at an impressive pace for the new UTS Broadway Building. After only two months, the site has progressed from a big, empty hole to a hive of activity.
It will take the team of construction workers until the end of 2013 to complete the largest of the Master Plan new buildings set to play its part in the transformation of the Broadway precinct.
THE SITE SO FAR
- Construction started in March and progress on site has been rapid during the first two months
- Almost all of the rock hammering has finished for the footings and drainage
- Concrete continues to be poured for each level
- Once the 'jump form' arrives on site in June the creation of the lift shaft and fire stair walls will proceed ahead of the floor levels
- When the building is above ground level, there will be almost 300 construction workers on site
- A staff forum will be held at the end of May to update staff on the construction phase - keep an eye out for an email invitation
