Date:                     Dec 2011 – Feb 2013

Location:             Research, Victoria

Client:                  Diamond Property Developments

Contract:             Asbestos Roof / Wall Removal and Replacement 5500m2

                               Decontamination of Sports Building


Safe Asbestos Solutions Pty Ltd was engaged by Diamond Property Developments on Behalf of Lend Lease and Vero Insurance to undertake the remediation of the Eltham College Sports building following storm and hail damage to the asbestos roof and cladding to the building.

The project involved the safe removal and disposal of approximately 5500m2 of asbestos roof and wall cladding, and replacement of the removed asbestos with architect designed Colorbond roofing and cladding. The high risk nature of the roofing works, at height over a full size swimming pool and basketball court, with no existing safety mesh was completed with zero Workplace Safety incidents.

The entire building and its contents were then decontaminated by detailed HEPA Vacuum Cleaning and Wet Wiping of all surfaces, done under controlled conditions and within a Negative Air environment. Full birdcage scaffolding was erected within the building to achieve these works. A total of 60,000 bags of contaminated soil were also removed from the sub-floor of the building, which was removed manually.

Bureau Veritas supervised all the works on site with daily air monitoring and Clearance Certificates issued on cleared stages.
