Broadway goes under cover
The Broadway Building looks set to get a roof for Christmas, with the first of the roof sheets being laid last week.
Installation of the steelwork for the over-sailing binary screen continues. This is a huge task, complicated by the fact that some of the steel beams are up to 25 metres long and require assistance from additional machinery within Jones St and on the roof to be installed.
The façade continues its climb up the structure, reaching level 12 on Broadway and Wattle St. It will be a while yet until the over-sailing screens are erected on site.
The roof is expected to be completed by year end with the first roof sheets laid last week.
