“Construction of Basement level 2 is continuing with a single pour of 300m3 concrete that was poured in a continuous pour over a 12 hour period to the lift core, completed. The building is founded on bedrock and to facilitate the construction of foundations it requires the “chemical blasting” of the rock to provide a level surface at the correct height. This work is underway for Tower A with two of the twelve footings completed already. The rock blasting for Tower B footings will commence next week.
October is usually a wet month at the end of the rainy season so progress will be a little more difficult but it is anticipated the first half of Basement level 2 will be completed during the month.
The second tower crane has been erected at the South end of the project this will be used for the simultaneous construction of Tower B” – Stephen Bush
