Hardies were initially approached to refurbish the two storey office building and were subsequently asked to undertake the entire project of creating a twenty four seven recycling depot. This involved refurbishing the Warehouse, external areas and offices from start to finish.
The sale of their existing premises triggered the green light for the project and due to severe time constraints the works were negotiated with a national contractor, the M & E aspects being contractor designed.
The works involved substantial civil works including reducing ground levels by three metres in places and subsequent removal of 25 thousand tonnes of material, extensive new concrete yards, surrounding concrete roads and replacement drainage. The existing Office and Warehouse services installations were dated and incomplete in areas and this led to replacement electrical distribution, lighting, fire alarms, CCTV and security systems were installed. Automatic gates, a 40,000 litre fuel tank and a weighbridge were also installed. The existing two storey office building was refurbished incorporating air conditioning along with creating new mess facilities for the depot staff.
The works were completed on site within nine weeks of the Client giving the go ahead for the project, this timescale being dictated by the date to leave William Tracey’s existing sold facility.
