Client: Delta Demolitions
About the project: Australia’s newest super-skyscraper, Australia 108 is the tallest residential tower in the Southern Hemisphere from floor to roof, spanning a colossal 319-metres tall or 100-storeys.
Located in the inner-metropolitan Melbourne suburb of Southbank, Australia 108 has been officially ‘topped out’ with its roof complete and its glass façade now reaching its highest levels.
This milestone has taken five years after piling work started in November 2015.

Cassaform liaised with the client, pre-assembled bracing components to improve construction speed and offered technical support and engineering certification, with the system being installed in 3-4 days.
