UPDATE on partially-demolished house at 1235 Avenue B N
(Update from May 28, 2018)
” The removal of the ACM material requires an approved demolition work plan by the Ministry of Occupational Health and Safety. Due to the partially demolished structure, the Ministry has requested additional information be provided prior to the demolition proceeding. The purpose of the additional information is to ensure the structure of the building is safe for workers to enter and continue the demolition. The level of detail requested by the Ministry for this project was not expected.
The City of Saskatoon is frustrated by the continued delays this project is experiencing, however we do support and understand worker safety is a priority. We are working with the contractor and the Ministry to address the work plan and continue with the demolition. It is important to note there is no risk to the public or residents in the area. The Ministry has not raised any concerns related to public safety throughout the review process.
Demolition timelines will be updated upon receiving approval from the Ministry to proceed with the project.
