Summary Currently, employers tend to fast rack works where construction can begin while design is still incomplete following three main phases of procurement. This session details a case study of a fast track overseas super high rise building, where an Australian firm acted as a technical expert to provide a detailed report on the failure of the shoring system, while construction of five basements had just started next to a marina. The lessons learnt from the case study are summarized with recommendations to have better practice of the fast track method in complex high rise buildings.
