Greencap was pleased to be asked to donate consulting services to a deserving community project in Victoria. Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS) is establishing a residential transitional school for Indigenous students from remote communities across Australia. Talented Indigenous students who have had limited access to quality educational opportunities will spend twelve months at MITS as Year 7 students before transitioning into scholarship positions at high performing Melbourne Partner Schools. The MITS project will create pathways for 20 Indigenous students per year to dramatically increase prospects of successful high school completion.
The transition school will be established in a rundown historic mansion that is to be extensively renovated and developed under management of McIldowie Partners. Regulation dictates that employers and property owners are required to ensure that asbestos and hazardous materials risks are effectively controlled prior to demolition or refurbishment.
As recognised experts in asbestos services, Greencap were asked to conduct an asbestos and hazardous materials audit of the MITS site. Greencap were able to provide the good news that the building had little, if any, asbestos present. The subsequent assessment report provided to the architect, builders and service contractors will allow preparation for safe work on the site.
Greencap were delighted to offer assistance to a worthwhile community project and would like to wish future MITS students every success for their studies.
