Excavation & Remediation
RPF Demolition have extensive experience in the remediation of civil, industrial and residential sites.
We specialise in full remediation of contaminated sites through to preparing sites for minor work constructions, managing the entire process from lodgement of DAs through to full site clearance.
Our remediation services involve:
- The removal and treatment of contaminated soil
- The removal of metal and organic contaminants from soil, mud and sludge
- Backfilling, contouring and compaction
- Drainage, revetment, trench install
We predominantly utilise our own equipment and staff. However, through sourcing additional equipment and staffing from a number of developed relationships within our network of preferred suppliers along the eastern seaboard of Australia, our capability can be expanded as needed.
RPF Demolition have invested heavily in our machinery. Our fleet includes excavators, trucks, loaders, rollers, asbestos decontamination units, demolition plant and equipment. This enables multiple crews to be self-sufficient and effective in undertaking tasks at short notice. All staff members have been fully trained and qualified in the areas of general demolition, asbestos demolition, removal and all safety requirements for these specialised tasks.
LIFE AT THROSBY – 18 THROSBY STREET, WICKHAM
Set on approximately 3900m², the Throsby site consisted of 4 large commercial buildings and 2 residential houses. All materials from the site were demolished and disposed of, with all masonry and metal materials being recycled and all asbestos and contaminated materials disposed of in accordance with regulations.
With a contract value of $246,000, the project was completed free of any incidences, utilising all RPF machinery and an in-house labour force. The project was both cost effective and achieved within the required timeframe for the developer. 49 residential units along with four commercial tenancies have been built on this site.
