ADDRESS 72 The Esplanade, Burleigh Heads
VALUE $5 million
Boardwalk Burleigh Beach is a 20 storey luxury apartment building with ocean views of one of Queensland’s most iconic beaches. Mainland was engaged to undertake demolition of existing structures and excavation of the basement.
Significant asbestos removal was required prior to commencement of demolition. Due to the close proximity of neighbouring properties it was a necessity to install perimeter scaffolding to ensure safety of the public is prioritised. A 35 tonne excavator was utilised with various attachments to successfully demolish the buildings. Materials demolished were sorted into their individual categories and disposed of accordingly and recycled.
Retention works entailing the demolition incorporated a combination of contiguous and sheet piles with anchors; followed by coninuous flight augering (CFA) foundation piles. An effective and efficient dewatering system was installed to ensure progressive excavation and temporary anchor installation was achieved.
Employing our vast experience, Mainland has been able to utilise various techniques to enable project cost minimalisation and production maximisation.
