Completed Demolition Projects

Take a look at some of the demolition work we’ve completed for our customers.

9 Buchanan & 25 Donkin streets, West End

Client:

R & F Property Australia Pty Ltd

Timeframe:

6 weeks


Brief:

Demolish two multi-storey steel and concrete warehouses, leaving a portion of one of the structures to protect a live transformer.


Process:
  • Plumbing, gas and electrical services were disconnected or capped.
  • A demolition permit was secured.
  • All asbestos-containing material was removed and a clearance certificate issued.
  • All salvageable materials were removed manually with mechanical assistance where necessary.
  • The section to remain in situ was manually separated from the structure and a protection gantry was erected around the transformer.
  • The structures were mechanically demolished and the site cleared of all demolition waste.
Challenges:

The site was originally developed on land with hydrocarbon contamination. Due to the potential for rising gases, ground slabs and tree stumps could not be disturbed and ground disturbance had to be kept to a minimum. The physical height of the structures also meant that lower storeys had to be demolished first. We used the resulting rubble to construct an elevated platform for excavators to access higher sections.

  • Your approach to safety, both in the planning and execution stages were exceptional. You provided all the necessary risk assessments, plant certificates, inspections, procedures, etc in advance, and then you actually followed them and undertook the work in a very measured and safe manner. Your ability to demolish, sort, remove and clean up such a large site in such a short time is remarkable. I look forward to the day we work together again!
