CSIRO PPCP 5A & 5B accreditation
September 2011 saw a new area of expertise entered into by the Swart & Sons team.
We are the second privately-owned South Australia Contractor to receive the CSIRO accredited PCCP accreditation for Levels 3, 4, 5A & 5B.
This unique accreditation allows Swart & Sons to work on Government Bridges and infrastructure that has lead based paints or heavily contaiminted paints within the structure.
This accreditation was 18 months in the making and the team at Swarts are very proud of this achievement.
Over the past eight years Swart & Sons have been steadily investing in mobile abrasive blasting equipment and specialty containment and waste recovery systems. The primary need for PCCP accreditation is to allow Swart & Sons to be able to differentiate itself in the passive fire protection market.
We are the only specialist passive fire protection contractor in Adelaide to have this accreditation which gives asset owners and builders confidence in our work as it is is audited regularly by the CSIRO.
The accreditation has opened up new markets for Swart & Sons in areas of bridge remediation and re-coating, South Australia's iconic ferry fleet upgrades, specialty works for companies like SA Water, Incitec Pivot and DPTI.
