Managed known Heritage sites within the Project boundary under Section 18 Approval of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972
The team developed the Environmental management framework and managed an environmental budget in excess of $1.2m (excl staff) in order to meet PTA, regulatory and tier 1 contractor requirements.
The Project was located on a former landfill, cement and asbestos product manufacturing site and in addition located immediately adjacent to the Swan River.
The site was contaminated, contained ASS and was in close proximity to several sensitive human and environmental receptors. Diligent and innovative environmental assessment and management was required to meet Project delivery objectives.
Our team members managed various environmental aspects, client and regulatory requirements.
Including; contaminated sites, contaminated sites auditors, acid sulfate soils, dilapidation surveys, noise, vibration, dust, hydrogeological assessments and monitoring, regulatory approvals, laboratories, environmental equipment suppliers, hygiene (asbestos) management, asbestos removal and heritage management.
The Project required extensive topsoil management, with large volumes of fill to be processed and moved within a small geographical area.
The topsoils posed a high risk of asbestos, acid sulfate soils and hydrocarbon contamination within the site. The Project required a large amount of sampling and classifying of the fill for reuse requiring HILs and EILs under either the public open space criteria or the industrial land-use undertaken. Our team members were directly involved in the planning, assessment and management of these soils.
The Enveng team aided with the development of methodologies approved by the PTA and the CSA.
These provided a use for the excess material initially as surcharge which ultimately diverted it from landfill. This saved considerable expense and disruptions to the Project schedule.
