Timelapse: Cementing Christchurch’s recovery

The largest concrete pour within the Christchurch central city cordon so far began at 3am on Thursday 28 February, and took 13 hours to complete. This timelapse shows the almost-750 cubic metres of concrete being laid on the site of a new four-storey office building on the corner of High and Lichfield streets. There were 32 trucks and two pumps were needed for the project as well as a team of 19 staff.
