Moora Service Station Demolition and Remediation

Moora, WA
1 month
Completed 2021


Aecom engaged Liberty Industrial for the decommissioning, demolition and remediation of the Caltex service station in Moora, Western Australia. The scope of work includes the retail showroom, workshop, canopy, lighting fixtures, signage, fuel bowsers and three underground storage tanks, concrete anchors and footings, underground pipes, concrete and bitumen hard standing and pathways. As part of the decommissioning process, all petroleum storage tanks have undergone a thorough cleaning process, with all demolition waste and contaminated materials disposed to the Shire of Moora in accordance with the regulatory requirements.


  • Moora, Western Australia, is in a remote location which caused difficulties with the logistics of plant and equipment and finding appropriate subcontractors for various on-site decommissioning activities.
  • Sensitive surroundings where demolition activities could impact the local community.
  • Severe weather conditions with extreme heat and heavy rains hampered on-site work progress.
  • Dust, soil and water management and odour control.
  • Delay in receiving environmental test results.

Robust Solutions/Exceptional Outcomes

Robust solutions

  • Liberty Industrial liaised with client Aecom to address project challenges, organise frequent discussions on safe work methods and get Work Method Statement (WMS) approvals.
  • We prepared a robust traffic management plan to guide the movements of all heavy vehicles during excavation and transporting materials off-site, which monitored the ground speed of our mobile plant equipment to minimise generating dust.
  • During the project, our team implemented stringent Erosion and Sediment (ERSED) and Environmental Controls to protect our surrounding community.
  • Asbestos air monitoring was conducted throughout the project, measuring air quality during demolition, disposal and remediation to ensure a safe working environment.

Exceptional outcomes

The project was completed as per the program, on time with zero safety incidents and received outstanding client feedback and appreciation.
