The project involved building of a capping beam around the perimeter of the basement with a car park ramp and a basement slab below street level, half of it being used as a cycle park.

Two slip forms were built for the metal frame to connect into it and for the metal deck to be installed. 3rd phase will involve concrete on the metal floors, while on the 5th and the roof the slab will be set to falls for planters.
