About D&V Services

D&V Services is one of the most experienced asbestos removal and demolition companies in Australia. Established in 1994 by two childhood friends Vlado Turic and Fernando D’Apollonio as a small asbestos removal company employing only 10 workers it has now evolved into a well-recognised and respected business. With combined experience of 60 years, our personnel are leaders in the industry with an extensive understanding of the services provided while also safely managing health, injury or contamination risks to ourselves, site occupants and the general public.

Our services have broadened from Asbestos Removal and Demolition to include:

  • Site/Environmental Remediation
  • Hazardous Waste
  • PCB Removal & Disposal
  • Waste Disposal
  • Duct Cleaning
  • Decontamination and Civil Earthworks.

With offices located in South Australia and Queensland, we now employ a total of 100 staff and undertake our operations in Rural, Remote and Metropolitan areas.

As major asbestos removal and demolition projects are often very complex, D&V Services Pty Ltd strives at all times to minimise disruption to the occupancy of any building involved in this work. Due to the increased level of risk to the personnel engaged in these processes, we manage a strict program of control, training and education, which enables us to offer a completely professional service whilst employing intelligent cost-saving methods.

In performing these services for our clients, whether it is a demolition project or hazardous material abatement, we are committed to delivering high quality results to the complete satisfaction of our customers.
