Posted October 13, 2018 12:31:17While there is still a lot of work to be done on the site, the latest news from the construction industry is that the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has begun work on the first phase of a new post-contamination and post-consumption cleaning operation.
The post-environmental cleaning will be the first of its kind in Australia, and it is expected to begin in late 2018.
There have been a number of recent developments in Australia’s post-poll environmental cleaning program, which aims to improve the sustainability of construction sites.
This new phase will involve a more extensive cleanup of the site to ensure there is no further release of toxins into the environment.
“It will involve the cleaning of the exterior of the building, and also the exterior installation of a large-scale system of sensors, cameras and chemical-free paint,” NPWS manager of operations, Robyn D’Arcy, said.
Ms D’Armacy said the phase one program would involve “more than just cleaning of site,” adding that there would be a focus on ensuring the building was not contaminated during construction.
In the next phase, Ms D’armacy said, a new system of monitoring would be used to determine the amount of toxins released during construction and post.
At the time of writing, the phase two program was still in development, and Ms D-Arcy said the first stage would involve cleaning of some buildings on the north shore of the Great Barrier Reef.
But she said it was expected that work on phase one would be completed by the end of 2019.
While there are still a number issues to be resolved, Ms Dunsmore said the cleaning program had a clear goal.
It is about ensuring that people are not being exposed to chemicals during construction, she said.
“It’s about doing the right thing for people.
The building itself has been cleaned up.”
But Ms Dunson said there was still a huge amount of work left to be completed on the remaining sites.
“I think we can see more people going through this phase, because we don’t want them to get hurt,” she said, adding that some of the sites that had been cleaned were not in the best shape.
