Dee Why Grand project

Name of project:

Dee Why Grand





Project details:

After thirteen months of deliveries, Hymix’s Brookvale plant in NSW has nearly completed the concrete supply for Dee Why Grand; a $260 million development on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.


As Southern Cross Construction’s sole concrete supplier, over 35,000 m3 have been used to build an impressive 12000m2 of retail space, four floors of commercial offices and 161 residential apartments for the mixed-use development.


"We did the entire job from beginning to end and that’s quite rare," says Luke McAllister, Hymix's Sydney East Customer Service Manager.


"We started at the piling and foundations with 10,000m3 for Vibropile, followed over the next thirteen months with 10,000 m3 of normal class concrete and 15,000 m3 of high early strength mixes."


"No other competitor on the Northern Beaches could deliver the 700 to 1200m3 pours needed by Southern Cross," adds Scott Lewis, Hymix NSW State Manager.


The biggest pours were completed between March and May when the complex’s large three-level basement car park was being built. This required Hymix to complete pours ranging from 700m3 to 1200m3 on a weekly or fortnightly basis.


"The basement slab for the car park was very thick, probably around one-metre deep," Luke explains.


"This saw us deliver an average 800m3 over twelve deliveries with two pumps on-site the entire time and not to mention an exerted effort from Brookvale's batchers and drivers to keep the supply up."


The project is considered a gateway project for the future development of Dee Why and the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Dee Why Grand was designed by Marchese & Partners and is set to open in August this year.
