A few weeks back we were having some terrible vibrations throughout the building. I tried to explain that they were removing concrete segments and the blinding layer ceiling underneath St Kilda Rd.
Here is a video that shows what was happening.
A few things to note
- The camera does not move – the back wall keeps moving away from the camera
- The camera is about at Bowen Lane / St Kilda Rd looking south
- If you look closely, you can see a ‘thin’ layer of ceiling concrete that falls away (with some help) at various points. This was a temporary layer laid to give a solid base to lay the concrete lab onto. Called a ‘blinding layer’. It was these chunks falling that caused us the grief
- In the final shot, the top right of the scene is immediately in front of The Botanica, near our front steps
