Mendelssohn Construction uses and recommends ATS Laboratories Pty Ltd, a National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited laboratory for fast and professional turn around for all asbestos sampling and identification. You can learn more about them by visiting their website here.

Asbestos Audits and Investigations

WHS Act requires all persons who conduct a business or undertaking to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that workers and other persons are not put at risk from work carried out as part of the business or undertaking. The WHS Regulations include specific obligations to manage and control asbestos and ACM at the workplace.

We at Mendelssohn Construction conduct non-destructive inspections and audits to investigate your workplace for any ACM (Asbestos Containing Material) and provide a detailed asbestos register and management plan to meet your WorkSafe Obligations for South Melbourne and Tasmania.

Asbestos Removal

To be a licensed asbestos removalist you must obtain a licence from WorkSafe Tasmania. The two types of licences for asbestos removal are Class ‘A’ and class ‘B’.

Class ‘A’

  • friable asbestos
  • non-friable asbestos and
  • asbestos contaminated dust.

Class ‘B’

  • non-friable asbestos and
  • asbestos contaminated dust associated with the removal of non-friable asbestos.

Mendelssohn Constructions keeps up to date with both our asbestos class ‘A’ lincence and our asbestos assessor licence.

State-of-the-Art Decontamination Units

With the utmost professionalism and highest regard for safety, Mendelssohn Construction have invested in three state of the art Decontamination units in various sizes. These units can be utilised for any asbestos removal or decontamination project and are each equipped with multi-chambers which enables a step by step transition from the contaminated area safely through to the clean area utilising a Negative Air Pressure unit which eliminates asbestos fibres leaving the contaminated area into the clean area. With a certification in ISO14001 Environment Management System we, at Mendelssohn Construction, ensures all our decontamination units are environmentally friendly.

Our first state of the art decontamination unit has three chambers and is our smallest unit. Together with our AMS 4000 Negative Air Unit this particular unit is perfect for those smaller commercial projects and residential jobs.

Our second decontamination unit is a 5 chamber unit incorporated as a trailer for easy transportation. Fully equipped with its own negative air pressure capabilities for safely eliminating any asbestos fibres transferring between chambers and sewage filtration plant with a 2-stage filtration process.

Our final decontamination unit comes with a miniature modular model which enables Mendelssohn Construction to not only strategically plan the most effective set up tailored individually for each client and their premises; but only allows us to demonstrate to client the exact process of the decontamination and asbestos removal works.
