EzyTube column forming tubes were recently used in the construction of the Top-Ryde Shopping Centre in Sydney.

This $470 million project is comprised of 8,000m² of retail space, 3,050 parking spaces, and above this, 452 residential apartments and another 10,000m² of commercial space.

The design requirements for the concrete columns for the Top-Ryde Shopping Centre involved a wide range of round, square, rectangular and custom shaped columns, with the basement carpark areas requiring multiple columns to be formed close together incorporating one to two internal expansion joints.

Ezytube's recently developed column forming tube, the "Multi" was used in this project. The "Multi" column forming tube allows multiple columns to be poured simultaneously, ensuring construction programs are fastracked while also accommodating almost any conceivable shaped column design.

Also used in the Top-Ryde Shopping Centre, the Ezytube re-usable “Boomerang” shaped column forming tube for square and rectangular columns ensured maximum productivity and minimum on site labour to install and remove after pouring.
