The Anzac Memorial Centenary Project completes Bruce Dellit’s original scheme for the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park with the originally envisaged water cascade. Additionally, new underground exhibition and education spaces allow the Memorial to showcase its collection and deliver its education programs.
This project is a stunning example of the marriage between structural and architectural precast concrete elements.
The concrete technology utilised modern polycarboxylic plasiticisers in combination with off white cement to produce a consistent concrete mix with a spread of 700mm.
In combination with high quality steel moulds, the finish achieved speaks for itself.
A hallmark of this project was the combination of the excellent finish in off white coloured concrete with the structural requirements that included large span, prestressed beam elements.
Advancements in concrete technology, attention to detail in the moulds and a high level of quality assurance throughout the manufacture process have enabled the striking finished product, which excels equally from an aesthetic and a structural perspective.
