What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a heat-resistant, naturally occurring silicate mineral fibre integrated into building materials in Australia and it was widely used between 1940 and 1980. Asbestos might be present in the products used in the construction of your home if it was built before the mid-1980s.
In houses built between the mid-1980s and 1990, it is also likely that asbestos-containing products of some kind or another are present. Homes constructed after 1990 are unlikely to have been constructed using asbestos-containing products.
It is best not to assume whether a product does or does not contain asbestos, and any suspicious material should be sampled and tested to determine if the material in your house does contain asbestos.
We regularly provide site asbestos-remediation solutions for commercial, civil, and industrial clients across Queensland. These can be as simple as the removal of a telecommunication pit to the removal of all redundant asbestos-containing water mains to an urban development. We specialise in asbestos-contaminated soil sites.
When full site remediation is not the most effective way to control asbestos, the material can often be “capped and contained” and managed on-site. Our team can provide all the supervision, labour, machinery, and haulage to complete all types of asbestos removal projects.
