early site photo: determining the platform levels

One of the key decisions for this project was deciding on the levels for the ground slab, the formwork seen here is set on a gradient, on a ramp, rising slowly to allow vehicles to go underneath the 'bridge' in the middle of its length, but allowing visitors to approach the entrance levels without restraint on one end. None of the surrounding trees have had to be relocated or removed, the plan has been laid out precisely to avoid cutting trees, the floor is generally about 1.5m above the site.
