Slab Removal, Working at Heights

Australia On Collins

About the project

Long time partner Delta Constructions, seconded our team’s services to help them remove concrete slabs as part of the 570 Collins refurbishment.

Noise and working at height on live edges were the key challenges with this project. The hotel that is situated in the precinct was still in operation, as too many of the centers retailers. Hence noise minimisation and time restrictions were a key consideration.

Working on live edges also presented its share of complexity. Our team wore harness and proper safety equipment and had to remove the large slabs with a combination of hand sawing, wall sawing, ring sawing and road sawing. There was a lot of detail in the set up and the scheduling of our involvement around noise and retailer/occupant restrictions meant we worked very closely with the Delta Demolitions project management team.
