Special features and fun facts
The largest concrete pour of the project was 1000m3 of concrete in one day - equivalent to 160 concrete trucks.
One of the 3 tower cranes commissioned for the project is the world’s largest capacity tower crane. The Favelle Favco M2480D is as tall as a 50-storey building and can lift 300 tonnes in a single lift.
Around 35,000 tonnes of soil have been moved off site. That’s the equivalent to approximately 140 Olympic-sized swimming pools full of soil.
Powerhouse Parramatta will be built with an estimated 12,000 tonnes of structural steel, which is triple the amount of steel used to build the new Allianz Stadium at 4,000 tonnes.
230 piles have been drilled and installed. Piles are underground reinforced concrete columns that provide vertical and horizontal support to a structure.
