Queensland Childrens Hospital

  In 2010 Specialised Concrete Pumping (SCP) was awarded the concrete pumping package for the $890 million Queensland Children’s Hospital (QCH) currently under construction by Abi Group.

With construction and concrete commenced in August 2010 the 4 levels of underground carpark  is nearing completion with 12 levels of state of the art hospital soon to commence.

Like many large scale projects in built up areas this site was presented with many access problems and therefore required careful planning between the contractor and ourselves to be able to successfully execute the concrete pumping program on time and on budget.

Limited space for so many concrete trucks resulted in a concrete pumping lay down area being established across the other side of Stanley St, 150m away from the site.

With the use of 2 high pressure trailer pumps (Putzmeister 2110 and Schwing 4000) concrete is conveyed underground via 4 static lines to service six placing booms (Putzmeister MX36 and Schwing KVM 39m, 2 x KVM 32m and 2 x DVM 32m SPB’s).

Concrete on this project is expected to be completed by Late 2012.
