Project area

The CSIRO Highett site is located in the suburb of Highett, 16km south-east of Melbourne CBD. The site is approximately 9.5 hectares in size and is bordered by residential properties along Graham Road, Middleton Road and a shopping centre and apartments to the north of the site.

The site clean-up and demolition project will include the removal of all buildings within the CSIRO Highett site and the safe removal of hazardous materials.

We will complete the work in three stages. Stage 1 was the initial site mobilization and detailed assessment of structures prior to any demolition activities. Stage 2 involved removing 31 buildings from the northern end of the site. Stage 3 will involve removing 30 buildings from the southern end of the site including remaining soil and structures from the Stage 2 works
