Dismantling mould-damaged plaster board wall linings

Adelaide Botanical Gardens Herbarium Works


Brimblecombe Builders undertook mould remediation works at the Adelaide Botanical Gardens Herbarium after water leakage on an upper floor flowed into the ground floor vaults.

This leakage had potential to cause issues with the plant species samples contained within the vaults.

The project scope was to remove sections of affected plasterboard wall linings, studwork and vinyl floor coverings and undertake a specialist cleaning process to remove any mould spores that are present.

This work was undertaken with air cleaning and dehumidifying equipment in place in conjunction with  several air and surface sampling to monitor and gauge the levels of existing mould spores present.

Part of the works required the installation of temporary air tight hoardings to seal the work area from the remaining sample storage areas within the vaults.

Once the removal and cleaning processes were completed further testing was undertaken to confirm that the levels of mould were not elevated beyond the normal accepted levels.

Following clearance the reinstatement works were  undertaken.
