Our Process

Watson Demolition Newcastle’s Work Process

Whether detected as a part of demolition works, or while the structure is intact, our team will take all the steps to ensure that the asbestos materials are removed entirely and without leading to the dispersal of hazardous asbestos fibres in the region.

  1. Thoroughly wet down the material before you start by gently spraying the surfaces with water. Continue to do this regularly during the removal process. (You can use water, water mixed with detergent, or water mixed with a PVA solution of one part PVA to ten parts water).
  2. If the work area is outdoors, use water from a low-pressure garden hose (make sure all electrical hazards have been removed from the area first).
  3. If sheets are bolted in place, dampen them and cut the bolts whilst avoiding contact with the ACM.
  4. Remove the bolts or fixings carefully and place them in the asbestos-waste container.
  5. Unbolt or use bolt cutters to release gutters, drain pipes, ridge caps etc. whilst in contact with the ACM.
  6. Carefully lower any large pieces of ACM to the ground – do not drop or put in rubble chutes.
  7. Stack fibro asbestos-cement sheets carefully.
  8. Avoid breaking asbestos-cement products.
  9. Avoid crushing ACM debris on the ground.
  10. Place small pieces of asbestos debris in an asbestos-waste container.
  11. Double-wrap large pieces of ACM in plastic sheeting (minimum 200 micron thick) and seal all openings securely with duct tape.
  12. Ensure all wrapped or bagged asbestos-waste is appropriately labelled.
