Asbestos is a dangerous material used widely in Australian construction before it was banned in 2003. It poses health risks such as scarred lung tissue and lung cancer in those who are exposed to it, either by mining it, manufacturing and building with it, or living where the asbestos building material has broken down and started releasing fibres into the air. If you suspect your building may have been built with asbestos, get it tested by hiring an asbestos expert through iSeekplant today.
An asbestos removal expert can test for asbestos by taking samples from various parts of your building, such as internal walls and ceilings, and sending them to a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited laboratory. After the samples are examined in the lab, you will receive a detailed report detailing whether there is asbestos in your building, where it is, and what type. The types of asbestos are friable and non-friable; both are dangerous once their structural integrity has been compromised, but friable asbestos presents a higher level of danger even while intact. Asbestos removalists isolate the area and install temporary sheeting to contain any dust, as well as using PVA and water during removal to stop fibres becoming airborne. They take these precautions to minimise health risks to anyone in the vicinity and follow safety regulations while removing the cladding, gutters, fascias, flooring materials, ceilings, rooves, insulation, fences and walls that contain the asbestos. The panels of asbestos-containing materials are then wrapped in two layers of thick builder’s plastic and disposed of at a registered waste facility. Your building is then cleaned of any leftover dust or particles with a specially filtered vacuum.
Emergency asbestos removal is also available to those whose building have been damaged by fires, floods or storms. An asbestos removal contractor will check the air quality, identify the damaged asbestos, restrict access to the area, contain and remove the asbestos in a more timely manner than non-emergency asbestos removal.

Annastacia Palaszczuk’s Labor Government has today signed off on a massive $2.1 billion development plan for Eagle Street Pier. The property group Dexus has signed the facilitation agreement alongside the government to bring the Waterfront Brisbane concept plan to life. The Minister for State Development Cameron Dick has stated the new agreement will transform Eagle Street Pier into a premium leisure and business destination. “The Palaszczuk Government is facilitating significant private investment to Queensland because it creates jobs and boosts tourism,” Mr Dick said. “Dexus can now commence the detailed design stage and proceed with development applications.” Dexus has estimated an average of 1120 construction jobs will be created annually over the next 10 years, with an extra 916 operational jobs supported once the works have completed. The Waterfront Brisbane proposal includes: A variety of riverfront restaurants, casual eateries and shops Two premium office and mixed-use towers on the Eagle Street Pier site Upgrade to the Creek Street and Charlotte Street intersection to improve pedestrian connectivity Upgraded wharf facilities supporting commercial and river tourism operations with provisions to support the delivery of a new City Reach ferry terminal New and revitalised public realm, featuring around 7900 square metres of open space (including approximately 3900 square metres in the Eagle Street Pier area), incorporating a market square and steps, urban verandah terraces, an extension of the City Reach Riverwalk and a new ‘green’ corridor connecting Eagle Street to the Riverwalk Enhanced City Reach Riverwalk supporting cyclists and pedestrians Mr Dick described the works as a “landmark project”, with an estimated $5.7 billion boost to Queensland’s Gross State Product over the next 40 years. Mr Dick also outlined this project will inject $230 million of value to Queensland’s construction and professional service sectors. “The Waterfront Brisbane proposal is a city-shaping development for Brisbane’s CBD and one that the Palaszczuk Government is proud to facilitate with Dexus for the benefit of the Brisbane and Queensland community.” Dexus Chief Investment Officer Ross Du Vernet said, “This is a significant milestone that unlocks the considerable potential in this Brisbane CBD gateway site which has sat under-developed for almost 30 years. “Its scale and central riverfront location provide a truly unique opportunity to create a world-class destination for city workers, residents and tourists. “Waterfront Brisbane is a key project in Dexus’ $8.7 billion development pipeline. We have been encouraged by the support our plans have received from the state government, council and the community, and we’re excited to bring this vision to life.” The required code compliant applications will be submitted to Brisbane City Council by mid-2020, Dexus estimates. Delivery of the project will be staged and subject to Dexus securing the relevant approvals. Construction on the Eagle Street Pier site is expected to commence in 2022 and the first tower to be delivered in 2026.Read more here
