Other products and services from Tbs Group


Concrete Remediation | TBS Group

We have a proven track record in a range of remediation techniques and our engineers and technicians can provide an inspection and assessment service to establish the extent of any problems and potential solutions. Whilst reinforced concrete can be a highly durable material, it is recognised that this durability may be impaired through carbonation, chloride attack and alkali silica reaction.


Tower Maintenance & Industrial Rope Access

This has a significant track record of safely providing innovative solutions to the maintenance of high structures using fall protected free climbing and industrial abseiling and rope access. Consistent with TBS policy, quality procedures plus inspection and test plans for every project, ensure quality compliance as well as providing fully documented quality records for clients.


Labour Hire, Demolition & Bin Services

Our demolition supervisors are qualified and highly skilled builders, allowing us to "deconstruct" buildings and interiors where retention of existing structures and or features is necessary. In addition to pure demolition, our skilled crews also carry out a wide variety of strip outs, alterations and remedial concrete work to both new and existing buildings.


Fireproofing, Industrial Waterblasting, Lead Abatement & Asbestos Removal

Lead paint removal projects can be quite complex when working around environmentally sensitive areas such as aqueducts, rivers, waterways, parks and gardens, foreshores, jetties and heritage structures. For exterior application of fire proofing to steel requiring rating, TBS is an approved applicator of Chartek, Thermo Lag, Fendolite MII and Pyrocrete 241 as well as most intumescent paint coatings.


Services | TBS Group

Our commitment to worker safety, conformance to strict quality control procedures, adherence to stringent environmental controls, and our ability to meet and exceed the specialised needs of our clients has enabled us to be awarded and retain many long term contracts.


Abrasive Blasting & Protective Coatings

Our experience over the years has enabled us to enhance work procedures and methods that have resulted in improvements in waste management and containment during abrasive blasting operations. A Gold Member of the Australasian Corrosion Association, our abrasive blasting and protective coatings services are undertaken throughout New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific.


Painting & Facilities Maintenance | TBS Group

Our Facilities Maintenance services include routine inspection and maintenance of grounds, buildings and infrastructure assets, and can range from provision of a single one off service to multi service term contracts. This could include by way of example, a complete repaint in the first year, followed by wash down and maintenance touch ups in later years, and a further repaint where required in the latter stages of the programme.
