8 Level Demolition – Pyrmont

8 Level Demolition – Pyrmont

8 Level Demolition - 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.

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.

Perfect Contracting are currently working on a detailed demolition and strip-out of a commercial building that has burnt down in concord for All Saints Constructions.

Due to the fire the supporting walls were damaged so the first task for our team members is to prop the supporting walls with structural props to ensure the integrity of the building stays intact during the demolition. Once the structural props were in place our team members began stripping out the interior of the building. Our site supervisor ensured all our team members were wearing full PPE at all times to ensure their safety. Next our team members with Working at Heights tickets began the structural demolition of the roof. Once we had safely removed the roof our team members began removing all rubble and waste from the site, which was loaded into our Tub Bin system for easy extraction from the site in our Tipper Trucks. Result: The project was completed on time and within budget and the client was very happy with the works carried out.

Structural Demolition – 122 Long St, Smithfield

Structural Demolition and strip-out in Smithfield, Sydney

Perfect Contracting just finished major structural demolition at Smithfield for Johns Lyng Group PTY Ltd. This involved the demolition, strip-out and structural make safe of a factory unit in Smithfield. Firstly our team members cordoned off the site to ensure the safety of the public throughout the project. Next the client’s engineers assessed the structure and concluded that the outer supporting walls would need to be reinforced with steel props. This would ensure the integrity of the structure was safe to complete the strip-out works. When the props were in place the client’s engineer assessed the site and signed off that the structure was now structurally sound. Once our team members had the all clear the internal strip-out works began. We used our 1.7ton Yanmar Excavator with a skilled operator to strip-out all the factory-shelving units. All the waste and rubbish was loaded into our Isszu Tipper Trucks so we could quickly remove the waste from site. When the internal strip-out was complete we then began works on removing the galvanised roofing sheets. We used an elevated working platform and all our team members had Working at Heights competency and full PPE to ensure their safety. Once all roofing sheets were removed from site, we then began to remove the structural steel girders as the client for this particular project requested it. A mobile crane was used to take the supporting weight off the girders. Once the crane was securely attached our team members then used an elevated working platform to oxy cut the bolts either side of the girder so it could be removed and safely lowered onto the truck for load-out. Result: The project was completed on time, within budget and the client was very happy with the outcome of the works involved.
