Scope of Work
Demolition of 2 buildings on North Tce, Adelaide (eight and seven storey building ) to make way for a new multi-level student accommodation.
Due to a very tight program, Royal Park Salvage was required to undertake split shifts with over 80 personnel inducted on site to complete the project on time. Friable asbestos pipe lagging in multiple areas over the eight levels was safely removed due to RPS developing an efficient methodology approved by the client, the environmental hygienist and SafeWork SA which enabled RPS to remove all the pipe lagging efficiently, and still allowing other demolition works to occur simultaneously throughout the two buildings.
The two buildings occupied the entire site (boundary to boundary) while the façade on both sides of the building had to be scaffolded to encapsulate the demolition works. On either side of the demolition site heritage listed buildings required RPS to engage a sub-contractor to supply multiple vibration monitors to allow RPS to monitor how, or if the demolition works were effecting the heritage buildings. Tight access meant that RPS had to regularly liaise with the neighbouring properties and the Adelaide City Council to gain approvals for various stages of the works, with all internal works being scheduled and completed to enable a partial road closure on North Tce enabling demolition works to commence. The site was so confined that engineered scaffolding was designed to cantilever over the neighbouring heritage building allowing demolition works to occur without endangering the neighbouring property.
All waste from the project was taken back to Adelaide Resource Recovery and approximately 90% of this has being recycled.
