ASBESTOS REMOVAL

Asbestos Workers

Asbestos removal needs to be taken seriously, there is no room for error.
Demo Logic provides assurance and expertise in order to accurately scope the requirements for each project individually and deliver the safe & sustainable removal of asbestos and other hazardous materials.

The removal of asbestos and other hazardous materials is conducted as an undivided process and this commences well before the on-site work is conducted. Thorough inspection & planning is what Demo Logic can offer so that the scope of each asbestos removal project is identified with full transparency – This means that there will be no nasty financial implications or surprises.

Each project is approached with the following general steps being followed to ensure full compliance with WorkSafe & OHS regulations:

Demo Logic specialised contractors will conduct a thorough audit (Division 6 audit) on each property. This allows for qualified personnel to accurately determine the extent of asbestos containing materials (ACM) and establish an Asbestos Register and asbestos control plan.

Following this, we will provide a fixed cost to remove the asbestos containing materials that could reasonably and accurately be found.

Based on the extent of ACM found, a notification of Asbestos Removal is applied to Worksafe Victoria prior to work commencing on site.

Our asbestos contractors will then organise for the necessary preparations in order to safely remove all ACM within the property. This includes all neighbour consultation and notification.

The asbestos is then safely removed and transferred into appropriate waste bins to be transported in licensed vehicles to the approved waste facility.

Clearance letter is supplied to allow for demolition works to commence on site.

Removal of hazardous materials is not limited to asbestos, some of the hazardous materials that can be found within many buildings & structures include:

  • Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM)

  • Synthetic Mineral Fibres (SMF)

  • Lead Paint

  • Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)

These hazardous materials need to be identified prior to demolition work commencing on site. Worksafe & Australian Standard regulations require a Division 6 HAZMAT audit to be conducted by a licensed authority. The Division 6 audit is a destructive inspection conducted within a structure and outlines the full extent of HAZMAT that will need to be removed or controlled prior to any works being conducted. The following are common areas that may contain hazardous materials:

  • Fibro cement sheeting – Generally found in wet areas, splashbacks, eaves

  • Vinyl Floor tiles – Vinyl ACM material and in some instances asbestos containing glue is found

  • Telstra/Comms Pit

  • Water/service piping and feeds

  • Electricity switchboard backing

  • Asbestos Roof “Super 6” sheeting

  • Pipe lagging
