Demolition / Asbestos Removal – Burwood

Demolition / Asbestos Removal – Burwood

Demolition / Asbestos Removal – Railway Parade, Burwood

Perfect Contracting are currently carrying out detailed demolition works for our client Ghossayn Group at Burwood. These works involve the detailed strip out and asbestos removal of an entire apartment block. Firstly our team members began by stripping the entire apartment block of all furniture and fittings. Then they began to remove the gyprock that was applied directly to the concrete subfloor. This proved extra tricky, as there was no ceiling joists and the gyprock as stuck with adhesive directly to the slab. This made the gyprock extra hard to strip from the ceilings and walls. Our team members used our Hilti TE70 and TE80 Jackhammers with title smasher blade attachments to get under the gyprock; they also used our cordless Hilti Reciprocating Saws to cut pieces at the edges. Once all walls and ceilings were stripped, our team members began clearing the roof tiles off the roof and dismantling the wooden beams of the roof. Our team members stockpiled all wood from the roof separately. This meant we could easily remove a number of 100% recyclable timber loads. As we are ‘GreenStar’ accredited we are always looking to recycle wherever we can. We always educate our clients the benefits of recycling when carrying out large projects like this, as it can end up saving them thousands. Once the internal strip out was complete and roof dismantled, our trained Asbestos Removal Supervisors began removing the bonded asbestos from the site. Using a large boom lift and the necessary protective equipment each piece was carefully removed and packaged in high impact LDPE 200um thick asbestos disposal bags. Asbestos monitoring equipment was set up around the parameter of the site to ensure the safety of the surrounding area throughout the entire asbestos removal process to ensure the safety of the surrounding areas.

Progress Update – 8 Level Demolition Project – Pyrmont

Progress Update – 8 Level Demolition Project – Pyrmont

Progress Update - The Revy - Pyrmont

Our team members from Perfect Contracting have been carrying out detailed demolition works for our client Infinity Projects at The Revy in Pyrmont. Our team members have begun the concrete penetrations on all levels of the building. The windows on the south and north side of the building have been widened by our Concrete Care division using our Tyrolit WSE 1217 Wall Saw. This wall saw allows our operators to safely carry out precise cuts through the double brick walls. Our project managers worked very closely with Shore Hire engineers to work out the safest methodology to prop the walls while we carried out our large wall saw cuts. Together with Shore Hire engineers we devised a methodology of coring four large core holes above the windows and installing reinforced steel beams. This would allow for the load on the walls while the larger section was cut out with the wall saw. Once our concrete care division had carried out all necessary vertical and horizontal cuts with the wall saw our other team members began by carefully removing the brick using hammers and chisels as we couldn’t risk using our jackhammers as this is a heritage building. We want to ensure the utmost care is taken when dealing with the external façade so it remains intact. Along with the widening of the windows on the south and north side of the building, our client requested concrete penetrations in the center of the building of each level to allow to lift doors. These works were carried out by our concrete care division, it was decided that the best methodology to carry out these penetrations would be to pre-cut the wall with our Husqvarna ring saw and then finish the cuts with our wall saw. On the east and west side of the building, our client requested for windows to be widened and reinforced concrete lintels to be installed above the window frames. This again required very technical heavy duty propping to be carried out on each window to allow the windows to be widened and lintels to be installed. So far our team members have successfully completed all penetrations on level eight and level seven and are currently working on levels six and five. Our clients Infinity Projects have been delighted with the quality of works carried out so far and are impressed by the work ethic and professionalism of our team members. We are looking forward to completing all works on schedule for our client.

Make Good – Westpac, 275 Kent St, Sydney

Perfect Contracting team members recently finished Make Good works for our client MPA Constructions at the Westpac building on 275 Kent St, Sydney. The scope of works involved over 2000m2 of carpet tile and gyprock wall removal Our team members firstly were all inducted on site to ensure their safety throughout the entire project. Once induction was complete they began to establish our toolboxes and material handing equipment onto the site. Due to this being a large project we had two crews working on this. One crew would perform all the gyprock wall and carpet tiles removals throughout the day and stockpile it all on our trolleys and tub bins systems so they could be loaded out at night by our second crew. Our team members then began by removing the gyprock wall using our Hilti Cordless Reciprocating Saws, being very careful not to disrupt any services. Once all the gyprock walls were taken down they were loaded into our trolleys and tub bins so that they could be loaded out that night. All waste material was separated into our Tub Bins and Trolleys so that we could easily recycle the different materials, as we are now GreenStar accredited waste removal specialists. All load outs were carried out at night as due to the decreased traffic on the roads we have a quicker turn around with our Hook Trucks and Skip Bins.

Travelator Removal – Sydney Domestic Airport T2

Travelator Removal – Sydney Domestic Airport T2

PERFECT CONTRACTING™ have recently started travelator removal works for our client HICON Building at Sydney’s Domestic Airport T2. These works involve the detailed demolition and strip out of several travelators in the airport terminal. Our team members began dismantling the first travelator on the 25th of October. The client requested all works to be carried out after hours due to restrictions in the airport. Protective hoarding was established by our client as protection for the public as the terminal is a live public space during the day. Firstly our team members began by oxy cutting the structural parts of the travelator to allow access to remove the individual sections. Next, our team members began removing the machine brakes, balustrade lighting, handrail, drive chain and track system. The glass balustrades were removed carefully by our team members along with the handrail and belt. This allowed our team members greater access to remove the tread ways. All waste material was removed from the site by our Isuzu Hook truck with a 15m3 Skip Bins. As we are now GreenStar approved waste removal specialists all waste was sorted at our yard and recycled.

8 Level Demolition Project – Pyrmont

8 Level Demolition Project – Pyrmont

8 Level Demolition Project - Pyrmont

Perfect Contracting have commenced stage one of demolition works for our client Infinity Group, in Pyrmont. This demolition project is to be carried out over 8 levels and involve over two hundred concrete penetrations through the floor slabs; three lift removals, heritage window removals, asbestos removal and structural steel demolition. Firstly, our experienced riggers performed a lift removal at the north side of the building. This involved the removal of the lift car and lining, shaft core walls and existing lift motor. Our rigger then installed certified hoisting equipment so we can use the lift allow us to transport our 0.8ton Yanmar Mini-Excavator with the hammer attachment to speed up the wall and floor penetrations on the upper levels. While the lift shaft on the north side of the building is being rigged out as a material hoist, our other team members are demolishing the concrete slab on ground level. This involves the removal of 750m2 of the existing concrete slab, which is 150mmthick. To perform these works, our experienced operators are using our Yanmar 1.7ton Mini-Excavator with hammer attachment and our large Bobcat S590 Loader to hammer out the slab and load out the waste and rubble directly to our 15m3 skip bins. All waste and rubble are to be extracted from the site via our Isuzu hook trucks for recycling. As soon as the lift at the north side of the building was fitted with our winch, our team members lifted our 0.8ton Yanmar Mini-Excavator to Level 8 to begin demolition works. Our team members also hoisted our two Bobcat S70’s to load out all the waste and rubble. As this site is a heritage structure, our team members are taking a duty of care when carrying out all the demolition works to ensure all heritage structures remain intact throughout the demolition works. All steel and rubble that is being removed from this project are being recycled by Perfect Contracting as we are now accredited GreenStar Waste Removal company which means we comply with all of GreenStar’s recycling guidelines.

3 Level Detailed Strip out – TAFE, Ultimo

3 Level Detailed Strip out – TAFE, Ultimo

3 Level Strip out – TAFE Ultimo, Sydney

Perfect Contracting have recently started demolition and stripout works for our client Rork Projects at TAFE Ultimo. These works involve carpet tile removal, gyprock walls, and glass removal. This building is classed as a historical building so it requires a technical demolition and stripout taking extra care to preserve all historical features such as door frames, stairs cases, windowsills, and chandeliers. As the lift in the building was small and is only classed as a personal lift it cannot be used as goods lift. It was assessed by our project manager that the most efficient way of removing all waste material from the building would be to use a scissor lift and skip bin at the side of the building and hand load all material manually into the skip. Our scissor lift operators have their EWP (Elevated Working Platform) tickets and are wearing safety harnesses and full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to ensure their safety. For the removal of the glass walls, our team members used our aluminium scaffold and suction pads to manually remove each piece of glass. The carpet tiles are being stripped on each floor and removed via the scissor lift. Special protection was installed on all staircases and balustrades by our client to ensure they remained intact throughout the duration of the project. For this project, we used our brand new 30m3 Skip Bin as this would allow us to load more material out each time. All waste and rubbish material is being loaded out by our new Isuzu Hook truck for recycling. We are also now GreenStar Accredited Waste Removal Specialists we are committed complying with all GreenStar guidelines.

3 Level Detailed Demolition Project - Balmain

Our team members have recently started demolition works for our client Lloyd Group at 73 Beattie St in Balmain. These works involve the detailed three level structural demolition of a heritage building. As this building is historical this requires very technical and precise demolition works to be carried out. Firstly our team members started stripping out offices on the 3rd floor at the back of the building leaving the heritage trusses and roof. Next our team members are beginning works at the front of the building where our client requires the removal of the concrete floor slab and 2nd level to be brought down to ground level. For the removal of the concrete slab it was assessed that the safest and most efficient methodology would be to make a series of deep cuts in the slab both horizontally and vertically with a road saw and then to use our 5ton excavator to remove the slab in pieces. The front facade of the building is also heritage so this must remain intact. Our team members will be back propping the façade with tilt props to ensure it remains intact throughout the entirety of the demolition works. The works being carried out by our team members at the moment are part of stage one of works to be completed for our client. There is three stages in total as this is a very detailed heritage building demolition we take the upmost care in ensuring all heritage structures remain intact. All waste and rubbish material is being loaded out by our Isuzu Hook trucks for recycling. We are now GreenStar Accredited Waste Removal Specialists we are committed complying with all GreenStar guidelines.
