Brokk Demolition Robot – Wilmot St, Syndey
Brokk Demolition Robot at Wilmot Street
Perfect Contracting completed works for our client Built. at the Wilmot Street. Part of the works we are carrying out for client requires the use of the Brokk 90 Demolition robot with crusher attachment.
This project requires penetrations on three levels on the building. As part of stage one of the works our team members started off the night by installing safety barriers on both the 15th and 16th floors. This was to ensure the safety of everyone on site throughout the duration of the works. They then installed our Zip-walls to ensure dust and debris could be controlled during the demolition works.
Due to noise restrictions all work with the Brokk was carried out after hours. One of the challenges of this project was to get the Brokk up the elevator to the 15th floor. Firstly 3 phase power had to be established at the loading dock to power the Brokk to reach the elevator. Then once up on the 15th floor 3 phase power was ran to the elevator to remove the Brokk.
Before the Brokk 90 could start using the crusher to eat away at the slab there had to be penetrations performed, our team members from our concrete care division Perfect Concrete Care used Hilti Cordless Hammer drill to drill into the slab and install 2mm dyna bolts and anchor points, they then setup our block and tackle. Once these were in place and secure they proceeded to cut out a small section of the slab with our Husqvarna Ring Saw, this was then lowered down to the 15th floor.
This penetration allowed the Brokk 90 to move in and begin crushing the slab from underneath. The floor on the 15th was covered with wooden hoardings to ensure the concrete falling would not damage the floor surface.
All waste and rubble was loaded into our Tub bins so it could be easily loaded out into our 10m3 Skip Bins at the loading dock.
Result: Our client Built is delighted with the quality of works carried out so far.
