Since the Adelaide Festival Plaza redevelopment began in December 2016, significant work has gone into preparing the plaza and restricting access for construction, with hoarding around the entire 3.9 hectare site.
Time lapse video began being captured in early 2017 with the demolition and removal of bridges, clearing of existing roads, relocation of sewer and stormwater mains, and preparation of the site for construction.
From mid-to-late-2017 site activity was focused on the construction of 342 concrete piles that will form the foundations for the SKYCITY Adelaide Casino redevelopment and surrounding public realm.
