Indesco was engaged to undertake the Development Application approval and to provide tender & construction phase services, including contract administration and site surveillance for this project.
We were successful in resolving the Development Application approval and subsequently provided construction phase services for the demolition of the Currong Flats buildings.
Works included demolition of three separate 8 storey buildings, disconnection of services into the block, removal of all internal underground services & structures, removal & disposal of all hazardous substances & contaminated material, removal and/or demolition of car parks, internal roads, streetlights and all required environmental reporting and clearances.
The project faced a significant challenge following the discovery of asbestos elements embedded within the concrete walls, therefore the demolition
methodology had to be changed as the buildings had to be treated as asbestos contaminated material. Demolition of the buildings allowed the redevelopment of the site for medium density residential and commercial uses.
