Perfect Concrete Care were engaged to complete concrete cutting and coring as part of a major upgrade to Ausgrid Substation in Gladesville. Prior to any works starting all members of the Perfect Concrete Care crew were required to complete a 3 day induction for Ausgrid due to the high risk nature of working in and around substations live areas.
As part of the demolition phase Perfect Concrete Care has to undertake precise concrete cutting, whilst ensuring the structural integrity of remaining structure was maintained. The roof of the substation was removed, involving high risk works through working at heights. Asbestos contaminated materials were on site requiring planned and careful removal of these materials.
Chemical installations were on site requiring planned safe de-installation, transportation and disposal, ensuring no harm to the public or environment. The removal of these chemical installations was one section of a major strip out of existing fittings and fixtures. Load out of the materials involved operation of an overhead hoist, making the process of loading out as efficient as possible.
Final works involved detailed excavation in and around the substation live areas, requiring precise operation of plant and equipment. All materials taken off site were part of a waste management plan organized for this major project
