Hazardous Material Removal - Perfect Remediation

Hazardous Material Removal

Whilst some of the sins of our construction past have escaped into our soils and waterways, many contaminants are still safely locked up in the materials themselves. With materials like lead, arsenic, asbestos, PCB’s, SMF’s and many other acronyms, the identification and removal of these toxic materials isn’t for the feint hearted.

Licensing, government regulations and the practical removal itself requires experience, expertise, systems and equipment that cannot be undervalued. As Sydney’s leading Hazmat removal contractor with more than a decade of experience, Perfect can provide hazmat removal almost in our sleep.

The PLR project runs right through the infamous Devil’s Triangle, the trigon of land where once stood the James Hardie asbestos manufacturing facility. The factory building itself was demolished in the 2000’s but the land beneath it had obviously returned soil testing results high in a number of chemicals. With remedial methods like organic and pyrolysis off the table, the only solution was excavation and disposal.

Some 80 000 cubic metres of contaminated soil was buried up to four metres deep under a concrete and asphalt cap. Deemed friable conditions, the removal process involved complete encapsulation of the site under pressurised airtight tents, hydraulic breaking of the cap and then excavation. Dust was controlled via multi-stage air recycling and monitors. Excavation continued until soil testing declared the site within safe parameters. The excavated material was trucked under encapsulation to a nearby safe zone and buried under concrete capping.

Perfect distinguished themselves throughout this project with zero incidents and a strict adherence to EPA guidelines and site rules at all times.

The multi-million dollar upgrade package identified hazmat remedial works to an abandoned shower block and disused warehouse. The shower block contained a friable asbestos concrete floor slab. The warehouse contained 300 bay lights that were laden with lead dust, in addition to 100 lineal metres of handrails painted with lead paint. All three items on the hazardous materials SOW were to be removed.

The only issue was that the 35t of friable concrete was on the second storey and there was no easy way to remove it. So the shower block window was relieved of its glass, encapsulated and a 900mm high timber platform was built inside to house a shower/filtration unit. Once the concrete was jackhammered up and double bagged in ACM standard bags, it was passed through the shower and outside to the EWP where the bags were hand loaded into an encapsulated skip on the ground.

The bay lights were cleaned using ACM-spec vacuum cleaners and wet rags. The handrails were sanded down, the resultant dust vacuumed up and everything cleaned with wet rags which were then disposed of.
