Construction Impacts

Ireland Brown Constructions started work on site in late January 2017. Bulk excavation works are underway to prepare the ground for new underground services and irrigation systems to the ovals. These works will cause some dust disturbances to neighbouring areas. .

Fencing is standard practice on construction sites to ensure public safety. There will be no public access while building works take place.

Asbestos

We have robust processes in place to safely manage asbestos removal on school sites, and ensure the safety of local residents and the wider community.

Asbestos pipework was identified during excavation works at the site. All asbestos-containing material is being safely removed, transported and disposed of by a Class A asbestos contractor, under the supervision of an environmental hygienist. This is in strict accordance with the Victorian Occupational Health and Safety Asbestos Regulations framework.

As a further precaution, air quality monitoring will take place during the excavation works. All results of air monitoring to date have been below the 0.01 fibres/ml detection limit, which does not require any additional measures under Victorian Occupational Health and Safety Asbestos Regulations.

If you have any questions or queries about the project please do not hesitate to contact us via email at vsba@edumail.vic.gov.au or calling us on 1800 896 950.

Vegetation

To deliver this essential community project, we are undertaking significant tree and vegetation replacement. We've made every effort to retain as much vegetation as possible. However, we have had to remove trees where construction impacts their root structures, making them unsafe. We are replanting more than two trees for every one removed.

We amended the school's initial design to retain 19 additional trees after extra community consultation about impacts on existing vegetation and follow-up arborist investigations.

Environmental considerations are an important aspect of the project and are embedded in the school design, including the development of a wetland to provide educational opportunities. The proposed wetland also provides additional benefits such as increased biodiversity, stormwater management, and minimising run-off into Longhollow Heathland.
