This prestigious project called for some high-quality curved formwork to accommodate the central core lift shafts and staircase walls. The formwork would incorporate a series of features running horizontally and vertically and correspond with elements in the columns and floor slabs.

Mitchelson’s were the concrete frame subcontractors. Skanska was the main contractors
