The DEEWR building under construction on the corner of Rudd and Marcus Clarke streets has had a major collapse while concrete was being poured.
Apparently no one was hurt but my there were a lot of appliances out and hard hats milling around.
The ABC has a report here and there’s a slideshow of the images below with thanks to Madman for sending in the better ones of the damage.
UPDATED: Just added some more photos doing the departmental rounds. If you get something new send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org
ANOTHER UPDATE: We’ve got a copy of the prohibition notice on the site. It’s closed until:
- After a competent structural engineer specialising in concrete structure has inspected the scene and conducted testing and investigation to ascertain the cause of the failure.
The ABC Radio News is reporting that this is the second (much larger) formwork collapse on the site.
