Andrew has been integral in the success of McMahon Services since the company’s beginning in 1990.
He has been instrumental in securing and delivering several of McMahon Services most complex and challenging projects in demolition, remediation, civil works, asbestos remediation and marine. He has also led McMahon Services’ expansion into new regions including New Zealand.
With a unique approach to asbestos removal, Andrew has developed various innovations such as the patented ‘Ceiling Access Unit’. Andrew has also trained an asbestos survey crew in the use of the RICO Robotic Camera for detection of asbestos debris in air conditioning systems. This highly technical camera / video allows a photographic survey of the ductwork prior to asbestos decontamination with a video produced after decontamination.
Through Andrew’s leadership and extensive knowledge of asbestos, McMahon Services has procured contracts with the Alinta Energy, University of Adelaide, Royal Adelaide Hospital, Adelaide Festival Theatre, SA Power Network and the Department of Defence. He still writes project methodologies and provides advice on demolition and asbestos removal practices at a project level.
Andrew was instrumental in the Federal Government’s Strategic Indigenous Housing and Infrastructure Program in the Northern Territory. Under Andrew’s leadership, McMahon Services became part of the Territory Alliance helping to deliver 934 new houses, 415 rebuilds and 2500 refurbishments across 72 remote Indigenous communities in the Territory by 2013.
