PROVIDENCE CARE HOSPITAL

The Providence Care Mental Health Services complex was a spiralling collection of four buildings first constructed in the 1950s. By the time PDI was commissioned to demolish the complex it comprised 600,000 square feet of buildings that had to be abated of asbestos, stripped of recyclable materials and then crushed.

It was a task that would normally take six or seven months but had to be completed in a fraction of that time. It was also a very compressed site which meant materials had to be constantly removed to maintain access to all of the buildings for equipment and personnel. Priestly implemented additional shifts to meet the deadline and handed over the property to the general contractor with time to spare.
