Household waste management centre
Customer: Dorset County Council – Bridport
The works comprised construction of a waste transfer hall with separate loading bay. We assisted in the value engineering process which involved changing the steel frame of the waste transfer hall to a portal-frame structure, which ultimately provided savings on assembly time and costs.
Value engineering initiatives included
• Changing the steel frame of the waste transfer hall to a portal-frame structure, saving on assembly time and costs.
• Improving the ground conditions with lime-stabilisation allowing the access road to be built without wasteful import and disposal.
• Working with the council’s environmental health team to remediate the site, burying Japanese Knotweed to a depth of 6m, in-line with current legislation, avoiding disposal costs.
• Switching to a single service conduit, in lieu of four, achieving a five-figure saving for our client.
