Birmingham based recycling and waste management company, Premier Waste UK Plc has secured a waste management contract as part of a £350 million redevelopment scheme of Masshouse. The Eastside project, one of Europe’s biggest urban redevelopment zones, will mark the arrival of a vibrant new district for Birmingham.
The flagship development has been brought to fruition by Masshouse Developments Ltd, a joint venture between David McLean, Nikal and Royal Bank of Scotland. Working together with leading developers David McLean Group, who were responsible for developing the flagship Crowne Plaza at Birmingham’s NEC, the 12 month contract will handle over 750 tons of waste.
When complete, the mixed-use landmark development will cover 1.1 million sq ft of the city and is set to dominate the skyline at Birmingham’s rejuvenated Eastside district. The new building will contain 550 high quality residential apartments, 250,000 sq ft Birmingham Magistrates Court, with 33 courtrooms, 500,000 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation and 800 car parking spaces. The complex will also boast ground floor cafes, restaurants and retail units, two new public squares; with traffic free landscaped areas, water features and public art.
Providing their unique Total Waste Management package for David McLean Group, Premier Waste are employing a dedicated on-site Waste Manager to take responsibility of waste removal and disposal. It is estimated that 80-85% of the waste will be recycled. The package offers clients a complete system with tailor-made packages designed to handle waste from start to finish to a fixed budget, they provide highly developed logistical skill in managing waste in multi-storey buildings with very limited space.
Total Waste Management is as much about environmental responsibility as it is about efficient, profit-oriented practice and value for money. Premier Waste’s is able to reduce the amount of waste it sends to landfill by up to 88 per cent.
In last year’s recategorisation from special waste to hazardous waste, plasterboard now requires segregation and processing separately to other construction waste. This is because plasterboard contains sulphate and when sulphate-bearing waste is mixed with biodegradable waste in landfill sites it releases toxic gases that harm the environment and potentially pose a future threat to the general public. Following a recent upgrade to their state-of-the-art recycling centre, the company has the unique ability to recycle 100% of waste plasterboard and provides the raw material for new manufacturing.
Damian Courtney, Managing Director of Premier Waste continued: “We are delighted to be working on such a prestigious project with a pacesetting developer like David McLean. Masshouse is set to be an iconic Birmingham landmark and a major contribution to the continuing ambitious expansion into Birmingham’s Eastside.”
Rob Stanton, Project Director of the Masshouse scheme commented: “Premier Waste’s environmental performance is congruous with our own high standards and commitment to minimising the depletion of natural resources. The service provided has been excellent, both in terms of on-site supervision and logistical back up; and the companies cost efficiencies and fixed price mean that we can work confidently within budgets and accurately forecast financial reports.”
Premier Waste’s cutting edge recycling centre can recycle 600-800 tonnes of waste daily and has already made a positive contribution toward higher standards of environmental performance at landmark developments including Beetham Tower, Matthew Boulton College, Centenary Plaza, and Selfridges, B5, The Mailbox, and Orion Building
Established in 1989, Premier Waste is one of the biggest names in the specialised field of waste management and operates the UK’s largest indoor recycling facility in its Birmingham head quarters.
