Before work begins, fencing is erected around the property and fence wrap installed.

Site signage on the fence provides information on when the asbestos removal is expected to start, when demolition is scheduled to begin, and the contractor's contact details.

Site preparation works are then undertaken. This can include a range of activities such as installing equipment, trimming trees, creating access pathways and removing fixtures and furniture as identified and approved by an independent licensed asbestos assessor.

Contractors will engage with immediate neighbours to discuss the upcoming demolition activity. It is important to note that timing of a demolition is influenced by a range of variables, including weather, staff and equipment availability, and demolition complexity.

The best way to stay informed is to refer to the site signage which is regularly updated by the contractor and shows the expected asbestos removal date and anticipated demolition date.
