The Demolition & Asbestos Industry Association Queensland Inc. (DAIA) was established in February 2006 to represent the broader resource recovery sector. DAIA is formerly known as the Demolition Industry Association Queensland (DIAQ, 2017-2018), the Demolition Contractors Association (QLD) Inc.

DAIA promotes safe work practices for the demolition, asbestos removal, recycling and associated industries and the diversion of waste from landfill achieved through increased recycling of valuable resources and materials resulting from relocation and deconstruction activities.

Our membership includes individuals, kindred associations, government agencies, demolition contractors & yards, recycling facilities, landfill operators, earth-moving contractors, asbestos removal contractors, consultants, testing laboratories, machinery and equipment suppliers and labour hire and training organisations, and other associated professionals.
The Association has been at the forefront of initiatives with government agencies to help improve training, reduce waste, preferred deconstruction methods to increase recycling, better identification of asbestos hazards, and safer asbestos removal methods. Information forums and regular newsletters advise membership of issues that need to be considered and addressed.
Regular approaches by local, state and federal government agencies for advice and technical expertise and policy development to help the industry and government adapt to the community’s changing expectations.
