Asbestos Removal Nelson
Nelson is the oldest city on the South Island of New Zealand and is the second oldest city in the country. Established in 1841, it has been built up over time and now boasts a population of over 51,000 with many historical structures of significance.
Nelson is known for its thriving arts scene which attracts tourists from all over the world to the Nelson Arts Festival as well the local arts and crafts events.
In addition to the many historical places’ worth exploring, Nelson has been nicknamed ‘Sunny Nelson’ due to it high number of sunshine hours per year, which also helps to attract tourists to the region.
The Waitaha people of the region are believed to be the first people to quarry argillite in the area (a sedimentary rock formed from consolidated clay).
Given the regions rich history it is no surprise that Nelson has flourished with an abundance of commercial and residential construction projects.
Given the prevalence of asbestos being used in construction, it was no surprise to see reports of asbestos being found in commercial quantities in and around the Nelson region for several decades now. Specifically, quarrying in this region continued into the 1960s and the import of asbestos products continued well into the 1980s.
It is important to keep in mind that whilst asbestos is a banned substance it can still be found in many buildings, especially those built prior to the late 1980s.
Nelson is surrounded by mountains on three sides and the Tasman Bay on the other. This makes for some of the most scenic views available in New Zealand and this pristine ecology is critical to the locals. ANZ Enviro are ISO 14001 – Environmental Management certified and are passionate about the environment as well as the consequences of contaminated materials, land, water, and soils on the ecology.
Contamination to the environment in soil or water can occur due to mismanagement, historical factors of a site, waste, or chemicals. Minimising this kind of contamination is key to the health and safety of its residents and the local environment.
As such, we have developed a collaborative approach focused on improvement, regeneration, and re-use where appropriate in all projects. Since implementation, we have significantly increased the number of recycled contents from site through better resource management and via collaborative efforts which have encouraged less waste in general.
Our team has also successfully recovered supplies and other materials where possible including those for architectural salvage. Throughout all our demolition and deconstruction works our team encourages repurposing, reuse, material salvage, disassembly, removal of building components for reuse (where possible and safe to do so).
This approach is appreciated by our Clients as it reduces our environmental footprint, but also improves the project bottom line with items being repurposed and salvaged where possible.
ANZ Enviro are fully licenced to carry out hazardous remediation including Class A and Class B asbestos removal works on any scope and size as well as contaminated soil, water, and waste. We have a proven track record in upholding safe working practices and maintain our standards as per Worksafe NZ.
Once a site has been cleared of hazardous materials, we always go to the next step to ensure the surrounding environment, plant and equipment is upheld with the upmost respect.
There are many different types of contaminants that can negatively affect our environment such as asbestos and ANZ Enviro can assist with these challenges as they occur.
On the rise is Per and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) which is becoming a global concern for many. Our team has an advanced filtration system designed to remove environmental contaminants and pollutants from water, soil, sediments, and any other soil material.
