The Retreat is Sydney’s newest, iconic resort-style community featuring its own childcare facility. Soaring 22 storeys alongside landscaped parklands and Sydney Olympic Park there will be 278 oversized apartments crowned by split-level luxury penthouses and town houses below.
There are 6 luffing tower cranes on this project. The free standing height of 72meters on 2 of these cranes is something that has not been completed before with luffing cranes of this size. Reds Global and Terex Cranes worked together to find a materials handling solution for the site so the client would not be effected with down time regarding tie installation and climbing throughout the duration of the works.
