The development of the new household waste recycling centre in Hampshire commenced on the 14th May and is expected to last 22 weeks.
The site is on greenfield land adjoining a major housing development zone and represents a key strategic investment for the county to replace the existing outdated facility at Waterlooville.
Kerbing works took place in August 2012.
The client's design called for a traditionally constructed steel reinforced in-situ cast concrete retaining structure.
Drainage up to five metres deep was constructed in poor ground conditions, which included managing an exceptionally high water table.
The capping materials used comprised recycled aggregates processed and produced in accordance with WRAP protocols.
The site comprises a split level arrangement. Careful control of earthworks was required to minimise the amount of materials leaving the site.
The Waterlooville scheme commenced.
Care was taken to ensure segregation and retention of the materials our client wished to be re-used in construction.
