Industrial Demolition Contractors

Chifley Drive Preston Redevelopment Site


IDES completed this major project in Chifley Drive Preston for Verve Project Management in 2011. IES demolished and removed a batching plant and associated infrastructure at the site including nine underground storage tanks which had to be removed and backfilled under strict geo-technical supervision. 5000 tonnes of concrete was also processed and transported for recycling.

The underground storage systems (UPSS) ranged in size from 12,000 litres to 70,000 litres in capacity and were all successfully removed and recycled. Office and workshop buildings were also demolished. 90% of the soil and mounded fill material on the site was relocated and replaced under level 1 supervision and then compacted to form the base for new development works.

This project highlights the efficiencies of having an organization like IDES undertake the works. The company was able to effect the parallel environmental and demolition services required in a seamless project delivery.
