South-Western Regional Asbestos Removal

PCB was engaged by Brookfield Johnson Controls to carry out the removal and remediation of identified Asbestos Containing Materials across three Defence sites in the South-Western Sydney Region; R.A.A.F. Richmond, R.A.A.F. Glenbrook, and Blacktown Army Reserve.

The project provided for the removal of both Bonded and Friable Asbestos, and included items such as Service Pits, Fire Doors, Eave Linings, Wall & Ceiling Linings, Debris, Electrical Backing Boards, Conduit and Pipe, Gaskets, Caulking, Expansion Joints, Roof Tile Supports, Packing, Membranes, and much more.

PCB provided works outside hours and during base shutdowns so as to accommodate removal works taking place whilst buildings were not occupied.

The project required complex management with the programme extending for many months, and personnel operating across all three sites concurrently. Similarly the buildings involved at each site were operated by very distinctive organisations, with many Defence Contractors, and Defence Units / Organisations involved; as such proactive communication with multiple stakeholders was essential throughout.

Varying forms of clearance and inductions were required at the three very distinctive sites as well. PCB ensured that all personnel were appropriately cleared and inducted at all concerned sites prior to works commencing.

All works were completed within budget, and without delay; and were fully cleared by an independent NATA accredited Hygienist.
