Stremaform® solution for Barangaroo South project in Sydney

The Max Frank Group impresses with site-specific Stremaform® applications and high-quality logistical project handling.

The largest ever inner-city building project in Australia is currently underway in Barangaroo, a district of Sydney. The old quayside between the Harbour bridge and Darling Harbour is being renovated. Australia's greenest and most up-to-date banking quarter is to be located in the southern sector of approx. 7.5 hectares on the 22-hectare site. Investment in this project is 6 billion AUD and the client is the government of New South Wales.

Currently in development is the southern sector of "Barangaroo" with over 430,000 m². All kinds of companies can now access space in the new International Towers Sydney (ITS). From the outset, the health and wellbeing of the employees has been the central focus in the development of the ITS. Natural light, views across the harbour and 100 % fresh air create a healthy working environment for the employees. Stremaform® from Max Frank was used in the construction of this iconic development.

The worldwide property- and infrastructure corporation Lend Lease, based in Australia and responsible for Barangaroo South, is employing exclusively experienced and competent partners with high-quality products for this building project. Max Frank Australia Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of the international Max Frank Group, won a major order with Barangaroo South to produce the 4 m-deep floor slab below the three International Towers. Executed in the first stage, the Client chose Stremaform® formwork elements. In the subsequent cooperation, Max Frank Australia Pty Ltd, engineers from Lend Lease and the technical department of the Max Frank Group in Germany found further opportunities for the use of Stremaform®. Particularly Stremaform® box-out formwork, which was used in the ceiling support areas of all the towers, enabled the separation of two types of concrete with different specifications. This greatly simplified the work and saved time on the construction site. In total 16,000 surface spacers and approx. 18,800 m Stremaform® were installed.

The Max Frank Group was involved from an early stage in this construction building project. Max Frank was therefore able to develop suggested solutions for implementing the problem statement given by the Client. The plans required for the detailed planning were then sent by Lend Lease to Max Frank in Australia and finalised in Germany.
