Frank Connolly

On this 12-storey block, Frank Connolly’s leadership, passion and commitment delivered quality. His relationship with the architect was collaborative rather than combative, with savings realised without compromising the spirit of the design. He prefabricated on a massive scale and had a cutting-edge digital strategy. He aced the city centre logistics of a land-locked site accessible only from a single-file lane by suspending part of the ground-floor slab over the basement to support a gantry for plant and delivery movements.
