Planning and assessments
The first step in the demolition process is site planning and assessment. Each house and site is individually assessed by the contractors to determine what needs to be removed and the final site requirements. This assessment is supported by the Demolition Package prepared for each house and site by the Taskforce. Considerations may include the management of trees and shrubs, landscape shaping, drainage, retaining walls and boundary fences.
At this stage, planning and coordination activities are undertaken between contractors, utility providers and the building and safety regulators. Once the assessment is completed by the contractor, regulatory documents are submitted and approved through WorkSafe ACT.
What will it look like? What will I hear?
At this stage, you are unlikely to see or hear activity on site. This will start to occur in the next stage in the demolition process.
How will I be engaged?
Unless you share a direct fence line with the affected property, it is unlikely that you will be engaged at this stage in the process.
How long will it take?
The planning and assessment stage takes approximately 15 working days.
