On Friday 30th November, the New Zealand Demolition and Asbestos Association (NZDAA) presented McMahon Services with their first award in New Zealand for the 2018 Demolition and Asbestos Awards for the category ‘Asbestos or Demolition Best Practice Project under $1 million’.
The award recognises McMahon Services first project in New Zealand, the decontamination of vintage cars contaminated with asbestos dust for the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) in Auckland.
John Flavel, National Manager for McMahon Services New Zealand, was in Auckland to receive the award on behalf of the team.
“This is a proud moment for our New Zealand team,” John said. “I commend Project Manager Anthony Woods, Site Supervisor Phil Colton (pictured) and the rest of the team for their professionalism and impeccable delivery of the works.”
Key to the success of the project was that McMahon Services trained the museum curators and conservation and registry teams – who were already experts in conserving artifacts – on how to clean and remove asbestos contamination under Class A and B conditions.
