Construction is well underway on Vibe – a luxury, 206 room hotel which will occupy the former Fletcher Jones building on the corner of Flinders and Queen Street in Melbourne.

A 24-storey glass-fronted tower is also being added to the 145-year-old building’s façade.

Waco Kwikform has supplied approximately 50 lineal metres of 15m high platform screens, with 650mm wide platforms to cover the building perimeter. Our screens are covering 4.5 floor levels at approximately 2.9m floor to floor heights. The screens were pre-assembled off-site. They were then delivered and installed on L02 slab. Installation to the building was by crane and climbing to upper levels by crane and hydraulics. 

The building changes shape after L20 and the slab cantilevers to about 2 metres past the typical building perimeter at L21. Waco has designed and supplied special cantilevered support decks with screens to carry L21 cantilevered slab and ensure perimeter protection is maintained.

A bespoke solution for a unique project.
