As well as being the second tallest highrise in the city, the new Aurora building on La Trobe Street in Melbourne City Centre will also be the only residential tower with its own access to the City Loop rapid-transit underground railway. A formwork solution from Lubeca and Doka was the system of choice for construction of the luxury residential highrise.
Challenge & Solution:
- Division of the building's core into two pouring zones, each with its own platform system
- Safe working at the building's edge with a protection screen 24 m high (gapless enclosure of 7 1/2 storeys)
- Safe and straightforward installation of the facade panels using a monorail system integrated into the protection screen
- Scheduling certainty for installation because the protection screen units are pre-assembled
