About the Project
The demolition and remediation of Princess Margaret Hospital, one of the largest of its kind in urban WA, was a unique, skill intensive project which required significant asbestos removal, sensitive treatment of important heritage elements, and innovative and critical thinking.
Many months of planning was required by RJV to carefully manage the demolition process in a way that minimised disruptions to external stakeholders, met various sustainability and governance targets, and significantly reduced the impact of dust in the area.
In December 2022, the project was completed with an impeccable safety record, no lost time injuries, and zero safety and environmental non-conformances. The final result went above and beyond the targets set for Aboriginal engagement and recycling with 99.5% of materials being recycled and 6.5% of the total contract value going to Aboriginal businesses.
