Airedale Courts – Three Story Demolition

CLIENT: Christchurch City Council
PROJECT: Airedale Courts – Three Story Demolition
JOB TYPE: Asbestos Removal & Demolition
VALUE: $450,000.00

Scope Demolition was contracted by Christchurch City Council to demolish a three story social housing block in the Christchurch City Centre. Due to the damage caused by the earthquakes, the building had to be strengthened using shipping containers to allow internal access. This was all done in partnership with Engineers and Christchurch City Council.

The duration of the project was approximately three months from the first day onsite to completion. As with all projects, safety was a major factor on this job in particular due to the neighbouring social housing properties and their residents. Safety was managed closely with close attention paid to the movement of machinery and the constant flow of trucks in and out of the site. The project was completed ahead of schedule and within budget to the satisfaction of the client.
