Cockatoo Island

Project Details

  • Hydro Demolition
Hitech Industrial Services was contracted by to remove areas of concrete that had been identified as suffering from concrete cancer at Cockatoo Island. Ultra High Pressure (UHP) Hydro demolition was chosen as the most effective method of removing the impacted concrete without affecting the structural integrity of the sound concrete, unaffected by concrete cancer. The use of traditional concrete removal methods, such as jackhammers, could cause micro-cracks in the existing concrete structure.
