QUT Kelvin Grove

QUT Kelvin Grove, E & L Blocks

The project at the Queensland University of Technology Kelvin Grove campus involved the demolition of two existing multi-storey buildings. These buildings required protective containment scaffolding to be installed to the exterior in order to minimise disruption to the University and ensure the safety of its users.

In order for the new development to comply with strict Green Star Rating requirements, Abyss Demolition took special care to ensure maximum recycling of suitable demolition materials, with more than 1000 tonnes being taken to recycling facilities.

The discovery of asbestos materials located between the concrete of one of the buildings resulted in the entire building being treated as asbestos contaminated material which was supervised by our qualified and experienced asbestos team. Abyss Demolition is a licenced asbestos removal contractor and holds A Class asbestos removal licencing, and employs experienced supervisors and labourers for our asbestos removalist teams. We have personnel who are trained and qualified in the removal of both friable and non-friable asbestos materials.

On completion of the demolition work, Abyss Demolition then carried out the civil earthworks components of the project. This involved the removal of asbestos contaminated soil and cut and fill works to the specifications required by the client.

Abyss Demolition integrated Quality, Health & Safety & Environmental which comply to international standards. This, along with the combined experience of its management staff, supervision and labour crews, means Abyss Demolition can effectively meet the complex safety and environmental needs of commercial and large scale projects.
