Despite the unprecedented challenges our industry and the wider community have faced throughout the year, we are proud to recognise that Elizabeth North has maintained programme across both stages through 2020.
A truly collaborative effort, the development’s progress is a testament to the hard work and dedication of entire project team inclusive of our construction partners in Probuild, their key subcontractors including Delta and I&D as well as the whole consultant group including Cox, Gray Puksand, WSP, Simpson Kotzman and Meinhardt Bonacci.
With demolition completed and the commencement of piling occurring in February of this year, we removed approximately 70,000 cubic metres of solid material from the site between February to October.
By October, the concrete structure had already reached Level 2 across Stage 1, with four General Cranes Favelle Favco M310D’s installed and the Lebeca Jumpform system being erected on Stage 2 following completion of the extensive raft.
From October to December, the project team maintained the strong momentum set throughout the year with ongoing progression of the concrete structure across both stages as well as commencing services installation to the basement levels, heritage façade restoration works and substantial progression of offsite procurement.
We look forward to reaching completion and welcoming our tenants including Trinity College, Melbourne City Toyota and Woolworths Metro to Elizabeth North in 2021, with CSL to join them upon the completion of Stage 2 in late 2022, as well as an exciting announcement in early 2021 on the anchor food and beverage operator.
