Macquarie Tower July Construction Update

Macquarie Tower is proceeding smoothly with the installation of the crane successfully completed, excavation for the footings is progressing steadily, and the elevator/lift footings are underway.

Hunter Readymix, one of our integrated businesses, has supplied 1,200 cubic meters of concrete for the construction of the elevator/lift footings. This concrete foundation will play a pivotal role in forming the structural core of the building. The crane is fully operational and stands at 40 meters. Once the construction team completes the level eight slab, the crane will jump to an impressive height of 70 meters.

The multi-stage 'top down' retention wall system is now complete, and excavation to create the correct basement level is well underway. Once this is complete, the structure will start to come back out of the basement and start to come together.  


  • Completed deep excavation down to basement level three.
  • All shotcrete and retaining works have now been completed.
  • Well underway with the excitation and installation of footings.
  • The tower crane has been installed.
  • Continuation of loading out large quantities of virgin excavated natural material (VENM) with 100% going to landfill at Redhead.

Activity on site is progressing well, with in-ground plumbing beginning soon, marking a significant step forward in the project. Following this, the focus will shift to installing the slab-on-ground, a crucial component of the building's foundation. In preparation for subsequent phases, the manufacturing of pre-cast panels has already commenced.
