Silverwater NSW, Asbestos Removal

Project Summary

RARE was engaged to conduct asbestos removal works at an operating Ausgrid site during a civil works upgrade. Bonded fragments were encountered during the construction of security bollards, during civil construction works.  RARE enabled the civil excavation to be completed under asbestos conditions, removing the minimum amount of asbestos to complete the works, and isolating the remaining areas with geofabric.  The excavation was cleared by an independent occupational hygienist, and civil works resumed with minimal delay.
