Gilbert st Torquay – Fire Damage Demolition.

A Brief intro.

Bayside has completed fire damage demolition works in Gilbert st Torquay.

The fire damaged multiple tenancies, with some walls being able to be retained and propped.

There was no asbestos on the site. However, working in a high-traffic area required traffic management and high-level dust suppression.




The Works .

The Demolition works were completed using an 8-ton excavator with the assistance of an EWP and mist cannon over a 21-day period.

A complex element was the steel walkway that split the properties.  The steelwork required careful demolition using an Excavator and oxy-cutting.

During the demolition, the remaining elements required propping as burnt debris was removed. The team was required to constantly examine the structure marked to stay to make sure it remained stable as building elements were removed around it.


The Planning .

When performing a high-profile demolition, careful planning with stakeholders is required

Bayside organised a hazardous materials inspection before the works commenced to ensure no asbestos or other contaminants required specialised removal.

Demolition works were completed over three weeks, with All About Traffic providing the Traffic Management Plan. This plan required Surfcoastshire approval as some public property was occupied to complete the works safely. Bayside project teams liaised with the council to help organise these demolition elements.

The Result.

The site is now clear and safe, with some buildings at the rear able to be retained allowing the owner to minimise rebuilding costs. The works did not affect the neighbouring properties; the street and public remained safe and undisturbed.

All stakeholders involved, especially the client, are satisfied with the work; the build team can now enter a clean site with neighbours, and the council satisfied with the works to date.
