The Barangaroo South project consisted of three high-rise commercial towers with a two level basement that spanned the three towers. As can be seen from the photos this was a very large scale project which saw the pumping and placing of 270,000m³ (cubic metres) of concrete.
This complex project required pumping and placing up to 2,000 cubic metres of concrete per day with restricted access for the concrete agitators and pumps. In addition to the pumping requirements the construction of the towers, which were central to the Basement, proceeded while the basement and podium were still being constructed, therefore no roadways for access were in place.
To meet the concrete requirement Boral Concrete installed an onsite plant capable of directly feeding four trailer pumps and an alley to load agitators for smaller pours; the largest on site plant operating in Australia at the time. The site plant was established 200 metres from the furthest tower which required DMG to pump the concrete 200m horizontally then 200m vertically.
The Barangaroo South Project is a testament to the skills and expertise of DMG staff who have delivered this landmark project.
