Kensington Profile

The history of asbestos usage in Kensington, like many other suburbs, is a reflection of its widespread acceptance as a building material throughout the 20th century. Asbestos was commonly used in the construction of residential homes, public facilities, and infrastructure due to its durability and fire-resistant properties. In Kensington, the style of homes that prominently featured asbestos materials ranged from Victorian and Edwardian to the Californian bungalows of the interwar period. Many of these homes were adorned with asbestos cement roofing, wall cladding, and fencing. Key buildings and public facilities, including schools and government buildings, also incorporated asbestos in their insulation, flooring, and roofing materials. The timeline of asbestos use in these structures typically spans from the early 1900s until the late 1980s, when the full health implications of asbestos became widely recognized, leading to a gradual phase-out and eventual bans on its use.

Currently, Kensington faces the ongoing challenge of managing the health implications of legacy asbestos within its landmarks and residential areas. Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that remain in situ pose a risk of exposure, particularly when they are disturbed during renovations or demolition. In response, local authorities have implemented stringent regulations for the safe handling and disposal of asbestos. Major schools and government buildings have undergone asbestos audits and removal programs to ensure the safety of occupants and workers. Historical sites, being particularly sensitive due to their heritage value, require careful remediation to preserve their integrity while eliminating the health hazards associated with asbestos. Public safety measures include community awareness campaigns and the provision of resources for homeowners to identify and safely manage asbestos in their properties. Health reports have highlighted the importance of these initiatives, as incidents of asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma and asbestosis, have been linked to exposure in contaminated environments. These efforts are crucial in safeguarding the residents of Kensington and preserving its architectural heritage for future generations.
