Commencement of Demolition Works - Removal of Asbestos Roof

Hello all,

Latest is that the hoardings/temporary fencing is due to be erected this coming Monday, 17 October to seal off the site for demolition works.  This is likely to take a couple of days, and is still subject to a Council permit, so we're looking at the enormous asbestos roof starting to be removed by around next Wednesday or Thursday.  We're awaiting advice from the contractor, Australasian Technical Services, as to the specific method to be employed.  We're assured hygienists will be involved and monitoring equipment will test for airborne particles at the perimeter of the site.

I'll forward more detailed correspondence to those living immediately adjacent to the site.  Meanwhile, if you'd like more information, just email us.

38 Merri Parade - Demolition in October 2011

For those not on the mailing list, we have received notice from the site's contract administrator that demolition will begin at 38 Merri Parade during October.  Currently it's looking like the week of the 17th, but could be earlier depending on the availability of various contractors.  We are told demolition of the whole warehouse will take about one month, including the significant concrete slab.  The whole project is scheduled to be completed over approximately 18 months.

We'll post key dates for major demolition, excavation and construction components of the project as they become available.  Meanwhile, if you're not on our mailing list and would like to be, please email us.
