Scope of Work
Precise mechanical demolition works, including but not limited to 1000m2 of buildings, 200m2 of a suspended building between 2 buildings which were to remain, 1000m2 of suspended slabs over 2 levels, and 500 linear metres of large concrete retaining walls. Internal demolition works to 5,000m2 of the university’s buildings.
The scope of works was required to be undertaken during the university holidays, with the working hours restricted. Additional staff were put on the project to ensure we met the required time frames.
The suspended building (level 2) was positioned above the level 1 stairwell which was not to be damaged and the Royal Park Salvage specialist 47T Long Reach excavator was delivered to site for this specific task. The excavator has a large concrete crushing attachment which pulverizes the concrete into dust, therefore mitigating potential damage to the levels below from falling debris.
All waste from this project was taken back to Adelaide Resource Recovery for processing and approximately 92% was recycled.
