Demolition

The safe demolition of houses affected by loose fill asbestos insulation ('Mr Fluffy') is happening across Canberra.

Each site is overseen by a principal contractor, with experienced licensed contractors undertaking removal and demolition works. WorkSafe ACT oversees site activity.

After all asbestos has been removed (including any affected soil) and the house demolished, these properties will be removed from the 'Mr Fluffy' register and offered for resale. 

Prior to any demolition activity the ACT Government and/or contractors will work directly with neighbours and the community to inform them of the works and safety arrangements in place.
