Concrete frames




19-27 Young St comprises of an eight storey frame (seven levels plus ground floor) along with a watertight basement. The site is bounded on three sides by existing properties. The bulk dig involved the removals of ACM. GCL used a thrust block and steel propping scheme to support the surrounding building while the basement was dug out. GCL used a mixture of temporary gantries to provide access into the job due to its restrictive nature.
