Non-structural demolition involves the removal of materials like doors, windows, floorings, air conditioners, cabinets, ceilings, partitions, walls, and other interior non-structural installations while leaving the exterior wall, roof, and main structures of the building intact. Likewise, soft strip outs of homes do not require the complete demolition of a structure. Instead of complete demolition, strip outs are done on the parts of a building that are damaged or contaminated with asbestos and other hazardous substances. Therefore, if you want to renovate your building or simply create more in-door space, a non-structural demolition or strip out might be your solution.

In that case, it is safe to have the area inspected to determine whether there are asbestos-contaminated materials in your building. A licensed asbestos assessor must carry out the asbestos survey and issue a clearance certificate before a professional can remove the asbestos from your building.
In line with the health and safety regulations of Queensland, air monitoring has to be done before the building demolition process to detect any airborne asbestos fibres. All the personnel taking part in the building demolition process should:
Asbestos could pose a health risk if not cautiously handled. Therefore, all asbestos removal should be done by a competent person. The code of practice requires all asbestos removalists to use personal protective equipment, have an asbestos licence, and observe workplace health and safety measures while removing asbestos.
