Project Description

Cleanaway requested a proposal from High Impact Solutions for demolition and remediation of Pit 1 within their Wingfield processing plant. The Project involved demolition of the top surrounds and its steelwork, followed by reinstating a new pit and installation of Acid resistant coatings. High Impact Solutions were then engaged to manage and direct the installation of the new Pit.

Reason for Engagement

The original rubbish pit had eroded so severely that the pit was structurally unsound. Its edges had cracks causing some issues with the edges. High Impact Solutions specialist Project Management and Hydro Demolition team was engaged to eliminate the potential collapse, ensuring the safest possible demolition and reconstruction while allowing the surrounding plant to continue normal operations.
