Michael Booy discusses the real-time challenges and solutions around the supply of concrete at Brisbane’s tallest tower Sky Tower.

Complex designs, be they for tower blocks such as Sky Tower or civil projects, make for challenging construction projects and contractors are increasingly looking to concrete suppliers to help overcome not only the technical challenges presented, but also demands for increased quality and fast construction cycles.

A good example of this developing partnership is the Sky Tower project in Brisbane, during a technical evening seminar the principle contractor for Sky Tower publically thanked the concrete for the excellent service provided.
