Nicholas St update: Civic plaza and library coming together, major milestone reached

The Nicholas Street redevelopment is coming together as construction work on the civic plaza and main library reaches its final stages, while the administration building last week marked a major milestone.

The civic plaza is taking shape with the recent installation of turf and plants.

Cleaning and sealing of pavers continues throughout the civic plaza after waterproofing was recently completed.

Commissioning of the main water feature has commenced; it is expected to be in full working order by the end of the week.

Work on the car park continues, with three of the six lifts connecting the car park to the civic plaza now installed.

The main library is on track for its opening later this year, with a final clean taking place this week as construction crews start to demobilise from the site ahead of its handover to council.

Work continues on the council administration building, after it officially reached its full height of nine storeys on Friday – a key milestone in its construction.  

The building’s full structure is gradually being revealed as formwork stripping reaches level eight. While the installation of the curtain wall – the outer covering of the building – has commenced on level five.

Inside, framing has commenced for level one’s butterfly ceiling.

There are currently about 230 workers on site.
