Soil remediation was carefully managed and reported to the high satisfaction of DPTI. Demolition included removal of documented and latent asbestos as well as hand jackhammering boundary footings.
The site had four Regulated Trees that required Tree Protection Zones and hand digging, these trees were reported by the project arborist to have improved in health at conclusion of construction.

The site was located in a busy location with high exposure and was of a high profile nature with political interest. Handover was coordinated with client installations and the project was completed weeks ahead of schedule.
