Eureka Tower, Melbourne - Keybox
Eureka Tower is located beside the Yarra River at Southbank, Melbourne. The 92 storey building stands 300 metres tall and is currently taller than any other apartment building in the world.
Ancon Building Products supplied several products to this development.
- Keybox Reinforcement Continuity Systems reinforced the core wall to slab connections
- Heavy duty cast-in channel to support the curtain wall façade
- BT Reinforcing Bar Couplers and Anchors to support the main structure and columns
- Ancon DSD Shear Load Connectors were used in the car park area
Ancon manufactures three products which provide continuity of reinforcement across construction joints in concrete.
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.
Lapped joints are not always an appropriate means of connecting rebar.
High-performance masonry support and fixing systems from Ancon have helped three of Australia’s most iconic new buildings to success in the country’s prestigious 2019 Think Brick Awards.
With October designated ‘National Safe Work Month’, Ancon is putting an extra focus on identifying and removing potential work-related risks so that no employee, contractor or visitor gets injured or harmed while working in or visiting the company’s locations.
