Complex Friable Asbestos Removal
Woolworths Kings Meadows – Remove Friable Asbestos
Woolworths Kings Meadows is a prominent shopping complex within the Kings Meadows shopping precinct. The store is open form 6am – 10pm daily giving Mendelssohn a limited time frame to access for removal of 190m² of Non-Friable asbestos including 1690 kg of decontamination waste and 500kg of Friable asbestos including decontamination waste.
Due to the proximity of the public and retail stores all works had to be carried out on night shifts and completed areas restored and cleared prior to opening the previous day for business. This was a challenge in itself, but did not deter Mendelssohn’s workers. All works were carried out according to plan with no interruption to the daily operations of the Woolworths and their staff and customers.
The external façade at the front of the store required 120m2 of bonded asbestos to be removed creating 1000 kg of decontaminated waste for disposal. In order to complete the process 2 mobile scaffolding and a scissor lift unit were required. Due to the volume and restrictive time frames removal was required to be completed in 2 stages.
