Miami Asbestos Removal

Miami Asbestos Removal

Miami is one of the suburbs of the Gold Coast that has had a huge range of asbestos removal jobs for us over the years. Everybody loves a good bathroom renovation or extension and houses in Miami have their fare share of asbestos removal. Because Miami is a beach side suburb it is one of the older suburbs on the coast. Being close to the ocean makes using asbestos in the construction of houses and commercial buildings.

I think most local people would agree that Miami had the most famous asbestos building on the Gold Coast the old “ Miami Ice “ factory it was even featured in a John Farnham film clip . It is long gone, and they have named the new Hi Rise in its place Miami Ice.

Some of the notable jobs we have done in Miami are the asbestos register for Pashas restaurant and then the safe removal of 20 tonnes of asbestos impacted soil from the site before the new Hi Rise was built on the site . And the safe removal of 50 meters of asbestos pipe from an underground sewer pump station for Gold Coast Council. Most of the other work we have done in Miami has been asbestos fence removal, asbestos whole house strip outs and the odd roof removal.

Miami is situated just 10 minutes from our office in 4/55 Bundall road Bundall so we can usually get there the same day if you need quote in a hurry.
