Building removals underway on Ginninderra

May 5th, 2023

CSIRO advises local residents that building removal works will be carried out at our Ginninderra site from May through June 2023.

The removal of up to 10 structures follows the relocation of CSIRO’s agricultural research to the Boorowa Agricultural Research Station and is a step towards preparing the property for proposed future urban use.

The building removal is scheduled to take place during 7 am-5 pm work hours from Monday-Friday.

The removal works have been approved by the National Capital Authority and will be carried out in line with relevant Australian standards and appropriate authorities such as ACTPLA, Comcare and ACT Work Cover.

While most of these buildings or structures are not close to residential areas, we expect that there will be times where residents can see and hear machinery operating and see truck movements across the property, if you are in the area at those times.

None of the works are in the identified conservation areas, however special measures will be in place to ensure tree protection and ecological protection throughout the works.

After removal of the structures the work sites will be remediated in line with Environmental Protection Authority guidelines by a suitably qualified environmental consultant.
