The complex takes its name from the word ‘exoskeleton’, which refers to its unique sculptural form, and it is expected to become a Melbourne design icon.On level eight, the residential hub of the building, the apartments surround an open-air atrium with landscaped garden. Exo is part of Lend Lease’s $4.5 billion Victoria Harbour, the epicentre of Docklands, and is expected to contribute to the growth of the area with nine retail shops at the base of the building and a 642-bay commercial car park for use by residents and visitors. Lend Lease has been a long term user of the Cementaid HPI (Caltite, 3CC, etc.) hydrophobic poreblocking ingredient technology, since the early 1990s. In Australia and internationally. HPI’s reliability, removal of the complete trade of conventional membrane ‘waterproofing’ and design-life performance of this enhanced performance, DRY! concrete is time-proven.
