Hansen Yuncken has been appointed to lead the NSW government’s Project Remediate.
The combustible cladding remediation project is a three-year program designed to deliver safe, compliant and insurable remediation solutions to flammable cladding on an estimated 225 identified high-risk residential buildings across NSW.
Hansen Yuncken will provide scheduling, system set-up and building investigation in the initial stages, followed by solution design, presentation, council and owner consent remediation execution and assurance, removing any responsibility from owners corporations and strata managers.
They will also establish panels of pre-qualified service providers covering building assessment and investigation, design, remediation and consultants to verify compliance.
Nick Luzar, NSW State Manager at Hansen Yuncken, said “we are delighted to be taking on such a pivotal role for Project Remediate, and are committed to delivering real outcomes to the highest standards for the owners and residents of the buildings affected by flammable cladding. Ultimately, we are here to make sure every homeowner involved will be given access to the best solution in a simple and reliable manner.”
“Project Remediate is a significant addition to our strong portfolio of Government projects.”
Hansen Yuncken was chosen over other builders for its proven budget and safety efficiencies thanks to its digital work processes.
“Sophisticated digital systems will allow the team to easily collect, upload and share data to facilitate the workflows. This will keep all stakeholders aware of the latest updates as the program progresses, and ensure that Owners Corporations and strata managers are kept informed at every step of the process”
NSW Building Commissioner David Chandler OAM said “the Managing Contractor will play a critical role in coordinating the delivery of safe and compliant solutions for each building, appointing experienced designers, constructors, superintendents and certifiers.
“Hansen Yuncken have assured us they will bring their A team to this program, and will see it through to the very last building that gets remediated.”
News of the appointment follows NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s easing of restrictions on the construction industry, with worksites to resume at 50% capacity from Wednesday 11 August.
Under the ease restrictions, construction workers from locked down local government areas will be required to have had their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to return to site.
Hansen Yuncken will commence remediation scoping and designs shortly, with remediation work to follow in early 2022.
