Act school asbestos management plans to build over two hectares of land at the south end of the campus for the future development of the former building that was destroyed during a fire

Act school asbestos management plans to build over two hectares of land at the south end of the campus for the future development of the former building that was destroyed during a fire.

After a decade of work, the building’s owners say construction of the site should be complete within six months.

The project, under the name Project Blue Sky, includes building over 30,000 square metres of retail and office space with an area of 25,000 square metres.

The project is in its 18th year of construction and the construction company contracted by the City to run the site was hired on a two-year contract with the State바카라사이트 Government of NSW.

On July 18, 2015, at 12.30pm, the fire in the roof of the building collapsed, killing a man.

A subsequent investigation found that asbestos from previous asbestos-containing construction sites in Newcastle, Collingwood and Sydney had leaked into one of the adjacent buildings.

A public inquiry was also started and in October 2016, the State Government’s Minister for the Environment, And바카라사이트rew Flinders Petrie, announced the site would now be put up for sale.

Mr Flinders says the state is committed to reducing the incidence of asbestos from state-owned land.

“This property is a great example of why we’re committed to a plan of action to reduce the numbers of residents affected by asbestos-related health and environmental damage,” he said.

“It will give the community a lot of confidence to make the purchase decision to help to ensure that our land is kept clean. The sale will take place soon.”

In December 2014 the State Governmejarvees.comnt announced the planned fire hazard closure of two adjacent state-owned land sites and the sale of the two existing properties.
