Subiaco Oval demolition and rehabilitation
2019 - 2020
City of Subiaco WA, Australia
Demolition – Bulk Earthworks
Underground Services – Landscaping
As part of the Subi East Development and on behalf of the Western Australian State Government via Landcorp, RJV were appointed to carry out demolition and remediation works to the iconic Subiaco Oval.
The project involved the relocation of existing high profile tenants transitioning into a construction site, management of heritage listings both on site and within the surrounding neighbourhood, removal of hazardous materials and completion of major demolition works within a built up residential / commercial area. The project scope also involved the returfing of the Subiaco playing surface for community purposes and for use by the neighbouring Bob Hawke College.
RJV were working closely with the local aboriginal community in the areas of employment and business engagement. The success of our strategies in providing long term employment and business relationships with the aboriginal community was a key factor in the overall success of the project.
Recycling is another key measurable that defined project success. Concrete was being processed off site and used in upcoming road construction on behalf of MRWA, with other materials such as steel, timber, bricks and glass being having been re-used for a number of different applications off site. Our processes were compliant with the Green Building Council – Green Star Construction & Demolition Waste Reporting Criteria.
The Subiaco Oval precinct is an iconic location within Perth and Western Australia. RJV are proud to be associated with the project and pleased with the successful project delivery for our client and wider Subiaco community.
