Emergency Demolition & Abestos Removal Works for Country Target, Port Lincoln.
Just days after an arson attack burnt out the Target Country building in Port Lincoln South Australia, McMahon Services received a call from the loss adjusters.
Within 24 hours McMahon Services was on site to assess the damage.
Five days on, our demolition team mobilised to site, ready to stabilise the structure in preparation for a complete mechanical deconstruction.
The building was declared structurally unsound, so the first immediate task was to block the road from public access.
The road was then lined with steel plates to protect the road once machinery was in active use.
The fire caused major damage to the pre-cast panels, so in a first for McMahon Services, the Ultra High Reach boom was fitted on the PC300-8 excavator with a Genesis cutter crusher attachment, providing a safer solution than cutting and crane lifting.
When fire crews were battling the blaze, water seeped through the ceiling of a neighbouring building, causing damage to the existing floor.
Already on site, McMahon Services was approached to remove friable asbestos backed vinyl from the adjacent property and dispose of the 280 square metres of contaminated material.
McMahon Services was commended by the local community for stabilising the burnt out building and for using specialist equipment to safely bring down the central structure.
