An Australian Defence Force department building was extensively damaged in a fire and needed an urgent remediation. We were contacted by the ADF to complete an asbestos survey and assessment report outlining the key remediation risks.
As the building continued to deteriorate as a result of the fire, we were presented with new hazards due to a decrease in the building’s structural stability. Assessment of hazardous materials within fire damaged properties are problematic and therefore require additional levels of safety controls. The goal was to complete the assessments swiftly, so our client could take necessary actions without further delay – which might lead to increased overall remediation costs and affect stakeholders involved.
Our team successfully surveyed the property for hazardous materials (including asbestos and lead). The outcomes from the assessment were summarised within detailed reports, enabling our client to consult the findings when developing the remediation plan.
Due to the prompt survey response and assessment findings, our client was able to execute the project in a safe and efficient manner.
