By now you’ve probably heard of Mr Fluffy. But, if on the off chance you haven’t, here’s the deal – a small business decision to improve Canberra’s energy performance in the 1960’s and 70’s lead to over 1000 established homes having residual loose asbestos, known as Mr Fluffy’s. Of course, we all know that exposure to asbestos can lead to significant health problems.
The ACT Government offered to buy back to those affected and the remediated blocks have been sold to the public. This has resulted in a unique opportunity for Canberra homebuyers to purchase these now vacant lands (known as ‘Mr Fluffy’ blocks) in established suburbs.
If you have purchased, or are considering purchasing a Mr Fluffy block, then you might want to get in touch with us! We can take care of all your Mr Fluffy block needs to ensure that your block is not only safe and free of asbestos, but that you can build your dream home on top of it. This includes:
- Conducting asbestos reports
- Disconnection and reconnection of services
- Obtaining required approvals for design, building and demolishing
- Demolishing existing home (if required)
- Site set up and preparation
- Contour surveying
- Soil classification reporting
At Achieve Homes, we want to make the process of building on a Mr Fluffy block as seamless and easy as possible. Contact our team today!
