Moonee Valley Race Course

Moonee Valley Racecourse was established in 1883. It is the home of the internationally renowned Cox Plate and the first racing club to introduce thoroughbred night racing to Australia. The racecourse and its rich history are now being integrated into Hamton Construction’s residential EnviroDevelopment, Moonee Valley Park.

Mann Group Vic. was engaged by Hamton to undertake the staged demolition of various existing structures. After establishing the site and erecting hoarding and public precautions, internal strip out and asbestos removal commenced followed by the demolition of the existing Tote Building. Propping was installed as part of the retention of the south east wall of the building and we also encountered unexpected finds of additional asbestos.

The next stage involved the demolition of the Administration Building, Gate 2 turnstiles and concrete slabs and paving. Separation and demolition of part of the Club Building saw the scope fulfilled.
Services provided to complete this project included internal strip out, structural demolition, asbestos removal and heritage sensitivity.
