DEMEX was tasked with clearing the site of the heritage listed Binna Burra Lodge in the Gold Coast hinterland, in preparation for rebuilding after it was extensively damaged by bushfires in September 2019.
DEMEX was invested in the project from the very beginning; working with the key stakeholders to ensure minimal disturbance to the flora and fauna, following the already devastating effects of the bushfire. Binna Burra Lodge is located in the Gold Coast hinterland and is surrounded by UNESCO World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park.
The project involved demolition and removal of the burnt structure, which was classified as containing Friable Asbestos, as well as remediation of the soil.
The prominent hilltop position meant safety was paramount with the multiple complexities and considerations to various trades all operating around and below our works, as well as significant risk of releasing asbestos fibres into the air. Air monitoring was required, and no elevated fibre counts were recorded.
