Saputo Dairy, Smithton

This project involved the demolition of 8 existing buildings on the former Gunns sawmill site in Smithton.

Key considerations relating to the risks associated with the demolition of the buildings:

  • Large motorised mobile plant and machinery
  • Existing services and plant (furnaces, substations, kilns)
  • HAZMAT removal and disposal

Innovative thinking and planning for the project include the re-use of clean fill/rubble from the site to construct hard-stands for felled timber storage on a neighbouring property, along with fill for existing pits on-site. Scope of works included demolition of all buildings, services, structures and equipment that exist on the site to the top of the ground floor slab surface level or exterior surface.
