Prior to any refurbishment or demolition works taking place, an intrusive site assessment (referred to as a Division 6 Assessment in Victoria) must be conducted. Given the destructive nature of refurbishment and demolition works there is an increased potential for human exposure to hazardous substances, such as asbestos. As such, the purpose of a Division 6 Assessment is to identify all asbestos items likely to be disturbed during proposed works on Victorian properties.
Edge specialises in conducting Division 6 Assessments on all kinds of structures and facilities, with the inclusion of other hazardous materials depending on the specific requirements of the site.
Other hazardous materials Edge commonly incorporates into Division 6 Assessments include:
Division 6 Assessment reports are often relied upon by demolition and refurbishment contractors when preparing quotations.
