What is happening?

What to expect

The initial site works will involve the establishment of a site compound, installation of perimeter fencing, removal of all furniture and equipment, and disconnection of services. The demolition works will follow, which will be undertaken by a licensed contractor with experience in safe extraction, handling, removal and transportation of asbestos and other demolition materials. Prior to the commencement of mechanical demolition external auditors certify that all buildings are free of hazardous materials.

As crews mobilise to site and works begin, local residents and businesses in the immediate area may notice an increase in noise and traffic movement. All works will be scheduled between 7:00am to 7:00pm Monday to Saturday, and the contractors will implement measures to mitigate noise where possible.

Dust control during the demolition process will be managed in a number of ways, including the installation of wind proof fencing, the use of water carts and the application of dust suppressants.

Plans for the future redevelopment of the site are yet to be determined, however consultation with key stakeholders will commence following demolition.
