About Us & Ashburton
Ashburton was designated as a borough in 1878, at which point there were only 500 buildings in the area. Since then, Ashburton found its place on the map as a training base for the Royal New Zealand Air Force during the Second World War with over 50 tiger moth aircraft based there.
The township’s population has expanded vastly alongside the Defence industry and Ashburton District is now one of the largest urban areas in the Canterbury Region.
More recently, Ashburton has been experiencing majority of its growth due to a cash injection from the New Zealand Government including contributions of $20 million to various construction projects throughout the area.
These urban construction projects have included works for a new library and civic center. With this influx in development plans, local property developers have also seized the opportunity and invested in the new retail hub called ‘River Crossing’ which is due to open its doors in 2023.
Projects in this area have included many new developments as well as renovation and refurbishments to existing buildings. When it comes to selectively deconstructing a site and recycling architectural antiques, ANZ Enviro pride themselves in being able to recycle and reclaim as much building materials and architectural salvage as much as possible.
This increases ethical recycling, removes the risk of any hazardous materials from harming the local population or the environment, reduces costs associated with a project and means that key architectural features are retained and salvaged. Following several decades of working within the hazardous remediation and construction industry, we at ANZ Enviro have developed several innovative strategies to harness sustainability within the industry.
During the dismantling process, our team has successfully implemented recovery efforts alongside recycling programs whilst continuing to follow all necessary regulations and legislation.
We believe our commitment to environment and investment in ecological sustainability is what sets us apart within the hazardous material and construction industry and we pride ourselves on continuously improving environmental outcomes.
Our activities have led to numerous collaborations within the industry which have proven that when time, effort and care is taken onsite health and safety can be maintained and sustainability can also be considered.
As discussed, the Ashburton area has an expansive history marked by a rich development including many historical structures found throughout the region. Growth within this area has contributed to a diversity of industries and services, increased labour force and as such, the need for many of the older established buildings requiring renovations.
During refurbishment and redevelopment projects over the years these historical buildings have required professional services such as hazardous remediation to ensure the safe execution of works.
Prior to 1982, asbestos containing materials (ACM) had a variety of uses and was commonly applied in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. As a naturally occurring fibrous mineral, asbestos was a cost efficient and durable option that had application in many products.
As a result, asbestos can still frequently be found today. More specifically, there are three many types of asbestos often found in building materials throughout New Zealand. Crocidolite asbestos (also known as white asbestos), amosite asbestos (also known as brown asbestos), and chrysotile asbestos (also known as blue asbestos). All three types of asbestos are hazardous to health and considered to be carcinogenic.
A non-exhaustive list of products asbestos can be found includes plastics, asphalt, cement, roofing materials, insulation, tiles, gaskets, paints, sealants, etc. Given the array of asbestos uses there is no way of confirming a product contains asbestos without laboratory testing a sample.
ANZ Enviro provides sampling and laboratory testing services for all hazardous materials including contaminated land as well as material samples which are suspected to be asbestos.
All samples are carefully processed at a Nation Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited laboratory and all samples receive a certificate identifying if asbestos fibres are present.
Our qualified team specialises in material and soil samples and can provide an expediated turn-around time for results upon request.

Whilst asbestos is one of the most common issues encountered in historic buildings it isn’t the only problem or hazard encountered.
In many instances, many environmental dangers could potentially be found in heritage buildings, and these must be considered prior to any deconstruction, renovation, or refurbishment projects. In addition to asbestos, lead paint, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), mould, and guano may also be found.
