    IDS to undertake Central Pier removal for Victoria’s waterfront transformation

    Industrial Demolition Services (IDS) is proud to have been selected by Head Contractor, Fitzgerald Constructions Australia (FCA), to partner in the demolition of the remainder of Central Pier, located in Docklands Melbourne.

    IDS completed the demolition of the Central Pier Western tip alongside FCA and Yurringa in 2022, and is excited to once again join this esteemed team.

    FCA, known for their expertise in executing complex and sensitive projects, brings a wealth of experience and a proven record of safety, sustainability, and delivering excellent project outcomes.

    Yurringa will also have an invaluable role to play, not only in being a key resource provider, but for their deep understanding of the Docklands precinct’s cultural significance to first nations people. Yurringa’s involvement underscores the project’s commitment to preserving and honoring the area’s heritage as part of its transformation.

    The abrupt closure of the pier in 2019 due to structural integrity issues serves as a reminder of the challenges faced when balancing historical preservation with modern safety standards, and the Central Pier removal project marks a crucial step in the ongoing revitalisation efforts along the Melbourne waterfront.

    The project brings together multiple stakeholders, all of whom are acutely aware of the concerns expressed by the local Docklands community. It is clear that successful consultation and communication will be the linchpins in determining the ultimate success of this venture and IDS is unwaveringly committed to meeting and surpassing the expectations of all stakeholders involved.
