Overview

Content
Lyndon discusses the planning and construction of Brisbane’s tallest tower that has had it's its fair share of challenges. Hutchinson Builders installed a custom designed cantilevered tower structure on level 66. The structure uses hydraulics to lift a flathead crane into operation during the day, lowering it into dormancy during the night. Any activity over RL152 is classified as entering Airspace and must undergo a rigorous application to proceed. Thanks to forward planning, the numerous applications – some up to 7 months – haven’t delayed Skytowers estimated completion date.
