At 270.5 metres, the SkyTower is the tallest building in the City of Brisbane and the fourth tallest in entire Australia. The 90-storey skyscraper offers 1,138 high-class apartments and on the 89th floor Australia’s highest infinity pool. The 8-level underground car park has 980 parking spaces.

HeidelbergCement’s Australian subsidiary Hanson delivered high-strength super-workable concrete for vertical forms as well as high-slump concrete for the floor slabs of the skyscraper. Challenges included truck logistics, supply of concrete also in congested streets, as well as the single stage pump up to 91 levels, which required a special product design.

Our high expertise in concrete technology is being demonstrated in a number of prestigious high-rise building projects throughout the world. These include the SkyTower in Brisbane and the TwentyTwo in London, which are the highest buildings in these two cities and require the use of high-performance concretes.
