Liberty Industrial carried out the asbestos removal and demolition of the former Stoneyard Depot located in Alexandria, Sydney.
The buildings were primarily used in the past as maintenance sheds but more recently, for storage purposes. In the near future the whole site will eventually be covered with fill containing a combination of crushed bricks and imported material. This base landscaping will then be grassed and over time the land will further developed for inclusion into Sydney Park. Demolition of the site’s buildings and reuse of waste material is the first of many steps required to revert the Stoneyard depot to park land.
Liberty Industrial works included asbestos removal and demolition of two buildings of brick construction to a height of 8m using a 25t demolition excavator. A specialised crusher attachment was used to crush brick and concrete to be re-used on site to between 10-20mm minus material for later reuse. Liberty Industrial worked closely with the client to ensure all works under contract were completed within time requirements whilst ensuring the highest level of safety was adhered to.
Liberty Industrial regularly interfaced and coordinated works according with the adjacent civil contractors’ requirements while maintaining productivity, program and upholding rapport with all stakeholders.
Liberty successfully completed the demolition and asbestos removal works in a 4-week period which was 4 weeks ahead of the original program set by the client.
Minor variation works added to the scope of works included removal of above ground pipelines, concrete saw cutting and realignment of stormwater pipelines.
The project was regarded by the client as a successful example of Liberty Industrial’s capability to achieve the best project outcomes.
