We work with our clients, sub-contractors and other stakeholders to achieve efficient, quality outcomes in residential projects.


Circle On Cavill

The Sunland Constructions high rise in Surfers Paradise, Queensland included the construction of two towers reaching 64 and 70 levels respectively. The request was for a super workable concrete that would compact with minimal vibration. The mix was designed to a W/C ratio with 10mm aggregate coarse and fine sand, GP cement, fly ash and Kaolite. Retarders and HRWR were also used for set control allowing the concrete to be placed without of slump loss.

Pacific Square Development

The Pacific Square Project located in Sydney's beach side suburb of Maroubra is a diverse and complex development. The Pacific Square Project incorporated retail areas, speciality shops, cafes, restaurants, with five residential towers, a town square, multi-level basement parking and extensive landscaping. Set over a one hectare site and undertaken in three stages, the nature of the project required high level technically based skills.

Q1 Residential Tower

The world's tallest residential tower is situated in Surfers Paradise. The Q1 tower is a total of 80 levels and reaches 275m skyward. Holcim developed an innovative method of adapting the mix design to ensure the pumpability of the concrete as the Q1 building grew. With four changes in concrete mix design Holcim provided concrete that was capable of being pumped 62m in the horizontal direction and a further 240m in the vertical direction.

Sydney International Airport

In January 2005, the Sydney Airport Corporation Limited (SACL) issued a tender for development of buildings to accommodate the Airbus A380 by providing an extension to the apron of the airport in addition to commercial car parking, commercial facilities. The testing requirements for the project were unique but Holcim developed a system with the tendering company to reduce manual handling by using site owned lifting equipment which reduced the cost of testing and personal risk.
