Yeerongpilly Green

Location: 641 Fairfield Road & 255 King Arthur Terrace, Yeerongpilly
Client: Hutchison Civil
Contract Value: $250k

The Yeerongpilly Green is an exciting new development site providing residential, retail and commercial opportunities within minutes of the CBD. Formerly occupied by the Department of Primary Industries Animal Research Institute (ARI), extensive soil quality surveying revealed that the site, not unlike many older sites in Brisbane that have undergone extensive filling, had areas requiring remediation from several contaminants. In 2016, Hutchison Civil engaged the services of Advanced Deconstruction to assist in the development and implementation of a remediation action plan that addressed the safe off-site management of asbestos, hydrocarbon and heavy metals.

With an ultimate objective to remediate and remove the site from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection Environmental Management Register, Advanced Deconstruction collaborated with Butlers Partners, Hazsure and Suneng to achieve the following;

  • Design and implementation of remediation strategy allowing for the removal and disposal of approximately 72,138 of asbestos lined landfill and low-unlined contaminated soil in accordance with the strict DEHP issued Soil Disposal Permit, set under a conservative data quality objective.
  • Developed a contingency management plan to ensure areas of unexpected impact were investigated and managed accordingly
  • Ensure that remediation works were performed in accordance with National Environment Protection Measure Schedule (assessment of site contamination);

 B1: Guideline on investigation levels for soil and Groundwater

 B2: Guideline on site characterisation

 B3: Guideline on Laboratory Analysis of potentially contaminated soil

 B4: Guideline on the site-specific health risk assessment,

  • Successful soil removal from site, ensuring best practice procedures were adhered to at all times.
