Pure Recycling needed to build one of the UK's largest Material Recycling Facilities in just 12 months

Pure Recycling owned by the Kier Group needed to construct a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) and Head Office based in Ettington in Warwickshire, in just 12 months.

The MRF was constructed by Heming Services Ltd (HSL) and the electrical design, supply and installation was then assigned to their sister company Ford Electrical Ltd.

The Ettington MRF will be one of the largest in the UK and will be able to process a minimum of 25 tonnes of recycled waste per hour.

A major part of this project was the construction of a large building to contain all of the MRF machinery. The steel portal framed building measured 8-12 metres high and covered a vast 4800 sq. metres. The roof and walls were covered with insulated profile sheets with four insulated loader shutter doors to allow fork lift entrance.

HSL then undertook the second phase to build a 100sq metre amenity block designed to cut out the noise pollution from the operating machinery. This comprised the internal headquarter offices, toilets and a canteen.

The third phase of this project was the surrounding 5000 sq. metre reinforced concrete distribution yard, which has to withstand frequent visits from articulated vehicles and metal skips. This included 1800 sq. metre asphalt concrete works used for bus and car parking inclusive of turning areas.

Part of this final project phase was the construction of a 1000 sq. metre bale store, used for storing excess compacted, recycled bales, prior to removal from site.

The whole site was contained within security fencing with sliding access gates which includes two weighbridges complete with weighbridge building.

The project was subject to stringent planning regulations and strict deadlines which were all met to the client's satisfaction of the buildings required use. We worked closely with all statutory authorities so that all parts of the project came together within the rules and regulations.

The project was completed ahead of schedule and within budget, this was largely down to the close liaison and good working relationship in assisting the clients own contractors who carried out fittings of the machinery internal to the building.
