Corner of Angus St & Victoria Sq, Adelaide
Hansen Yuncken P/L
The basement had been constructed previously under a separate contract & therefore a substantial amount of lead time for precast manufacture had “evaporated” as the Builder was able to move directly on to an established, partly constructed site. In addition, most of the round polished columns were load bearing at ground level & therefore critical to the early part of the Builder’s programme. Bianco Precast have the only dedicated imported round column polishing machine in Australia & by using this on extended shifts & with close & continual consultation with the Builder, all columns & panels were delivered on programme.
The mix design of crusher run Harcourt Granite in Brightonlite/ HES cements of equal proportions, as developed by Bianco Precast, closely resembled natural Harcourt Granite and resulted in an outstanding appearance with the building seemingly constructed from huge Granite monoliths.
