CLARENCE VALLEY TANK DEMOLITION
Clarence Valley Council
Lawrence and Southgate, NSW
Stage 1: Oct 19 – Nov 19; Stage 2: Dec 19 – Feb 20
Major Projects Group facilitated the demolition and site remediation of two large, now redundant, water towers in Clarence Valley, NSW.
The towers themselves were 24.3 meters in height and had a radius of 7.6 meters. As well as being located in a remote location, the tanks presented a challenge due to their close proximity to neighbouring private residences and school grounds. These challenges were increased due to the high concentration of asbestos and lead contamination in the tanks.
SCOPE OF WORK
The project included the removal of asbestos and a lead coating on two 24.3 meter high water tanks, the demolition of the water tanks themselves, removal of material, and groundworks to fill in the resulting hole.
Close proximity to private residences and school grounds;
Hazardous materials on site;
Fire prone area; and
Remote and hard to access site.
The demolition of both towers and removal of materials was completed on time, with no major incidents and minimal interference to the surrounding buildings and environment.
