RitecRetrospective: Citigroup Centre, Sydney, Australia

Citigroup Centre is a 243-metre (797 ft) skyscraper located in Sydney, Australia. Upon completion in 2000, it was the 8th tallest building in the country and is the second-tallest in the city when measured to its spire.

Built by Multiplex Constructions, Citigroup Centre was completed just a week before the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

Because Ritec ClearShield® ‘non-stick’ easy clean glass surface protection was specified prior to construction, this was factory-applied in Brisbane by G. James Glass and Aluminium while quality assurance was carried out by Hi-Tec, a glass structure specialist.

ClearShield® application prior to installation proved to be a masterstroke, as the rest of the façade was made of exfoliated granite and any rainwater run-off was removed with minimum effort during the construction clean-down, also carried out by Hi-Tec. This saved time and helped to reduce delays. Beyond Day One, ClearShield® helps to save time during cleaning and the glass looks like new between cleaning cycles.
