Whoops! Cameron Offices incident

By paperboy - 17 January 2008 49

Just heard a whisper that the demolition work at the Cameron Offices has gone amiss, with part of a wall collapsing onto a car parked nearby… Anyone know more?

[ED: Here’s a pic thanks to Ray!]


[Ed. ABConline have more news that it may have been caused by a faulty phone]

What’s Your opinion?

Noooooo; Jessica Wright would say we were condoning unsafe work practices!

Go on, who wants to submit it to the ABC and CT so we can build better relations with them?

Mr Evil 4:12 pm 17 Jan 08

I blame Workchoices for this!

Does this mean the Union will call a walk off until the OH&S boys do their investigation?

From the ABC article:

[Cameron Offies] “won worldwide acclaim through a listing on the Union of International Architects Heritage register”

… really? So, famous European architects of the 60’s used to marvel at how awesome the new Cameron Offices were?

I guess they really did have better drugs in the 60’s. :/

Yeah, after the initial excitement throughout the office the sick feeling started. Heaps of people walk past there everyday, heaps of cars park there etc etc.

It is a really dumb place to park and walk, but the other side of the arguement is that they haven’t stopped people from walking past or parking there either. Just so lucky it wasn’t a whole lot worse.

What is it with the complete inability of our city to demolish our buildings properly?

Holden Caulfield 3:12 pm 17 Jan 08

Yikes! That could have been very ugly.

mran 3:09 pm 17 Jan 08

Sure do, happened right outside the office. It used to be a maroon Falcon…not anymore! Fortunetely there was no one in it, but that’s usually where everyone parks waiting to pick up people from Tax, ComSuper etc.
