In July 2019, AAH Contracting was engaged to undertake the asbestos remediation process of the former Corkman Pub site (160 Leicester Street, Carlton).

In December 2020, AAH was engaged again to undertake further remediation works.

AAH will continue to work closely alongside Melbourne City Council, WorkSafe Victoria & EPA prior to and throughout the remediation process.

 

December 2020 Works

Tentative site mobilisation works are planned to commence on Monday 14th December.
Very minor asbestos removal works will take place on this day, with investigations works to be carried out for the rest of the week. It is anticipated these works will take approx. 5 days, ending Friday 18th December.
These dates may be subject to change. This page will be updated accordingly.

Key points to note for the removal process of asbestos-contaminated building debris;

  • WorkSafe Victoria & EPA have been notified
  • All applicable permits have been approved by Melbourne City Council
  • Asbestos removal works will be carried out as per regulation for non-friable asbestos works with dust suppression measures in place.
  • All waste will be transported via 200um plastic lined, EPA approved trucks to EPA approved landfill with tracking dockets
  • An independent hygienist will conduct air monitoring throughout the duration of the removal works
  • An independent hygienist will be conducting a clearance on site upon completion prior to demobilisation and throughout works as required

AAH acknowledges the safety concerns and interest surrounding this project and therefore will be providing safety and general updates via this page until works are completed.

 

July 2019 Works – Completed

Works were undertaken in 2 stages

Stage 1: Safe removal of a free-standing brick wall – Completed
This Saturday 13th July will involve the preliminary works performing the removal of the brick wall down to a safe working height. No asbestos removal works will occur on this day. The below is an excerpt from an independent hygienist assessment of the wall to confirm the absence of asbestos materials. 

 “As discussed, we have previously undertaken representative sampling of materials from the remaining wall and verified that no asbestos-containing materials are present. As such, your proposed works to demolish the wall to a safe level, using a knuckle boom positioned outside the Site boundary, can be undertaken without the use of asbestos PPE.”

Stage 2: Removal of waste from site – Completed

Key points to note for the removal process of asbestos-contaminated building debris;

  • WorkSafe Victoria & EPA were notified
  • All applicable permits have been approved by Melbourne City Council
  • These works will be carried out as per regulation for non-friable asbestos works with dust suppression measures
  • The footpath will be temporarily fenced around immediate boundary throughout the duration of works with traffic management provided as necessary
  • A water waste management plan is in place
  • All waste will be transported via 200um plastic lined, EPA approved trucks to an EPA approved landfill with tracking dockets
  • An independent hygienist will conduct air monitoring throughout the duration of the removal works – Completed
  • An independent hygienist will be conducting a clearance on site upon completion prior to demobilisation – Completed (Clearance Certificate has been issued)
