180 Thomas Street Ultimo is a nine storey office building constructed above an existing substation. The project includes retail tenancies at ground level, outdoor eating areas fronting the local pedestrian network, and three levels of fitout including a wintergarden. The building is a steel framed construction with external glass lifts and an extensively glazed façade. The existing structure was originally designed to accept future development and six trusses weighing a total of over 120 tonne will be mounted on struts on the existing roof to support the new works. - See more at: http://www.slattery.com.au/projects/180-thomas-street-sydney/#sthash.YMdodKzN.dpuf
 


Erection of the steelwork for the 180 Thomas St Haymarket project has commenced. The first steelwork to be erected was the 6 transfer trusses at plantroom level that allow the transition of the office floor plate columns to suit the contemporary office floor plate layout of the new office building and provide the 9.5m cantilever on the western side of the building. Completion of the erection of the Level 1 steelwork will allow the Level 1 concrete floor plate to be placed with the erection of the upper levels of steelwork to follow.



Fabrication for the steelwork at the 180 Thomas St Haymarket project has commenced with erection of steelwork programmed to commence in December. The steelwork for this project is being fabricated in China.
enstruct are taking a significant role for our client in overviewing the quality of steelwork to ensure that all Australian Standard and project quality requirements are met and certified. enstruct have also played a key role in the engagement of an international 3rd party inspection firm to provide full time inspection services of the fabrication process and certification of the steel being supplied for the project. enstruct staff members have attended the fabrication facility in Zhongshan China several times since the project commenced and will continue regular attendance until the fabrication of the steelwork is complete.
