Anglicare Dapto is located just next to Avon on the western side of the Princes Highway, nestled into dairy farms. WCED were contracted on a demolition, earthmoving, and civil construction / civil excavation basis by PBS Building to make way for more affordable housing within the Illawarra for aged residents. WCED conducted a demolition on 6000 square metres within the complex under very testing weather conditions during the peak of La Nina from February – July with heavy and constant downpour of rain. This made vehicle access demanding and constant top ups of aggregate and road base to enable an effective worksite were required on site.
The initial demolition was conducted over a month basis, removing the building structure and concrete paving and footings. As always WCED recycle as much as possible of the material we salvage from the demolition. This can be in the form of bricks and rubble which is crushed for aggregate, copper which is stripped and sold back and steel. All these materials can be recycled and often help the bottom line for the job when unexpected circumstances are factored in.
Civil construction was conducted by WCED and took place roughly 2 months into the job, with our skilled excavating operators and skid steer drivers paving the way for the construction to take place by PBS. Our civil works on this site were complete and comprehensive from levelling, piling, footing, and laying the concrete slab, Wollongong City Excavation and Demolition completed this job well within time-frame and budget, so why choose anyone else.
