Wivenhoe Aggregate Processing Plant Demolition

The works involved the dismantling and demolition of the redundant Aggregate Processing Plant at the Tarmac Depot in Wivenhoe, Essex.

The steel structures were taken down using 49 Ton ‘Long Reach’ and 30 Ton demolition specified excavators utilizing shear attachments, breaker attachments and pulverisor attachments.

The Plant was dismantled by shearing the steel frame and reducing the Plant, piece by piece, to ground level. Once on the ground the steel was cut to size for transportation off site to a local metal recycling facility. Approximately 250 Tonnes of metal was recycled

The concrete foundations, floor slabs and wing walls were then broken out using breaker attachments to the excavators with the resulting concrete being recycled into 6F2 material for use as a capping layer with the steel reinforcement sent for recycling. Approximately 300 Tonnes of concrete were recycled. The foundation excavations were backfilled with the site then graded and returned to a flat and clean condition.

Sleepers from the Plant storage bins were set aside for reuse with the unsuitable sleepers and demolition waste (approximately 40Tonnes) were disposed off-site to licensed Waste Facilities for recycling. The project was completed to programme and within budget.
