Mainland, as part of a $7 million dollar early works package have been engaged to assist with asbestos remediation, demolition of two existing structures; one structure as a two storey brick timber structure and the other as a three level apartment block with a basement.
Prior to demolition commencement, scaffolding and backpropping were installed to encapsulation of demolition debris and safety of workers. Initial soft stripping of furnishings and appliances was thereafter undertaken. Demolition was undertaken with a 35 tonne excavator with associated attachments. Materials generated from this was organised in discrete stockpiles and recycled.
Followed by successful completion of demolition, a sheet pile retention system was installed along with foundation piles. Challenges of dewatering was encountered to enable installation of anchors and subsequent excavation.
Mainland’s vast experience in city excavations and demolition has enabled project costs to be optimised. Various techniques employed in shoring and excavation procedures has ensured productivity is maximised.
