About Us – Mendelssohn Construction

My name is Trent Mendelssohn, and I’m the founder of the Mendelssohn Group of Companies and the Mendelssohn Trust. At Mendelssohn Construction, I employ a qualified team that specialises in demolition and asbestos removal. We have the qualifications, licenses, training and experience to safely identify and remove all types of asbestos.

We also offer services like commercial construction and demolition. If you need our help in South Melbourne or Tasmania, call and make us your asbestos removalists today.

Local Knowledge, In-Depth Experience

If you run a workplace anywhere in Australia, you’re legally required to keep asbestos registers in your building unless your office was built recently or is declared asbestos-free. Our team can go through your workplace, identify any lingering asbestos and remove it safely to protect you, your employees and your customers.

Our team has worked in the South Melbourne and Tasmania areas for years. We know the types of asbestos that are most likely to be found in your building depending on the area and year in which it was built. As unrestricted class A asbestos operators, we understand every aspect of Australia’s laws on asbestos in buildings. We can help you prepare asbestos registers that perfectly align with the law.

Along with the services listed here, we also offer:

  • Safe demolition services
  • Building inspections
  • Audits
  • Air sampling for air quality monitoring

No matter which service you need from us, we have the experience to take it on. We accept large and small jobs alike. Our team also stays up to date on all changes to Australian laws and the best practices in the demolition and asbestos removal industries. Trust us to bring you quality service every time.
