TCE World Demolition Awards – 2018 Finalists – June 2018

TCE are Finalists in the 2018 World Demolition Awards for the Burwood Lighthouse Project. The Burwood Lighthouse Project was chosen from thousands of potential project entries worldwide. The project consisted of the partial demolition of an existing 3-level basement carpark, which was attached to mid-rise commercial and residential buildings and busy roadways, all of which were fully operational during the project delivery.

The project required substantial and extensive designed temporary back propping, slab propping, bracing and shoring to ensure the integrity of all adjacent structures remained intact. This maze of temporary propping and shoring was sequentially removed as the demolition of the 3-level underground structure proceeded. “The highly constrained site size, location and access posed considerable challenges in delivery of this highly detailed, complex and technical deconstruction project.”

Project Manager, Raouf Khodr said. “The project was in an extremely busy and high profile location within the heart of the Burwood Central Business District, so it was imperative that during the deconstruction process that our focus be on safety, Client and Community Consultation, co-operation, transparency and compliance to achieve excellent execution and ensure holistic satisfaction with the project delivery – for TCE to be chosen as a Finalist from thousands of outstanding companies worldwide in the World Demolition Awards is a great achievement and a fitting reward for TCE and our Project Team”

The World Demolition Awards for Excellence in Demolition and Deconstruction Projects will be held in October 2018 in Dublin Ireland.
