Marr Contracting said the much anticipated major project will start with prepatory works this month and is likely for completion early next year.
Managing Director Simon Marr said: "At 233 m, this tower is equal in height to a 77-storey building which posed a number of challenges. Over 12 months working with multiple stakeholders, we designed an approach involving some of our unique equipment and the introduction of guy wires to laterally support the tower crane and allow it to climb to the required height (247metres) to dismantle the tower."
Highlighting the importance of working with experts in their respective fields, Toby Long, the General Manager (Residential Development NSW) at Mirvac, said: "We have an industry-leading reputation for upholding the highest standards of safety."
