WCN Editorial Team 23 Oct 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Taylor Woodrow, the UK subsidiary of VINCI Construction, has signed a contract with North London Waste Authority (NLWA) to build recycling facilities.

These facilities will be a part of the North London Heat and Power Project (NLHPP).

The construction of the project will begin from January next year.

Prior to the construction phase, the project involves an Early Contractor Involvement phase during which the design will be finalised and preliminary works will be carried out.

The project, which is worth £78.9m (€87.4m), is expected to be completed by October 2022.

The project will have a Resource Recovery Facility, which will have the capacity to manage and recycle 135,000 tonnes each year.

It will also have a Reuse and Recycling Centre for public and business use. This will help residents to dispose of their waste directly.

Along with these facilities. the project will also have an EcoPark House. This will be a facility open to public to raise awareness amongst the local community.

EcoPark House will impart awareness on the importance of circular economy and the need for reducing carbon footprint of waste.

The geotechnical engineering work for the project will be done in collaboration with VINCI’s subsidiary companies, Bachy Soletanche and Vibro Menard.

The subsidiaries will complete the complex foundations to support the 74m long processing hall.

The project will also include a rainwater collection system. There are also plans for clean energy system which will be powered by photovoltaic panels and geothermal energy.

This project will also investigate a system to tap energy from the nearby River Lee Navigation using hydro turbines.
It will be installed with ventilation systems to neutralise any odours.

NLWA has an aim to divert up to 700,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste from landfill and achieve 50% household recycling rates to protect the environment.

The project will save emission of 215,000 tonnes of CO2 in a year, which is equivalent to an area that is home to around two million people.

Taylor Woodrow had earlier built two facilities in north Yorkshire and Cornwall.
