Ilkeston – Scrap Metal Facility, Derbyshire

For: Ward Recycling

Client / End User: Envar Limited

Services Provided: Civils Design, Civils Construction

Scope: Foundation for a new scrap metal shredder and sorting installation at Ward recycling in Derbyshire and to provide new scrapyard facilities around the plant installation.
The new scheme involved the construction of substantial concrete foundations and plinths for the actual shredder machine, along with a new two storey steel framed electrical control building and overhead gantry crane to service the new shredder.
The existing hardcore service yard was upgraded with approx 20,000m2 of new heavy duty concrete slab complete with a drainage system and two new Class 1 oil interceptors to provide Environment Agency compliance.
Two new weighbridges and a small office were constructed to allow efficient delivery vehicle management.
