Parish of St Helier Waste Recycling Centre

 

The Parish of St Helier Recycling Centre project comprised of the erection of a single-storey steel framed building with a large recycling hall, mezzanine offices and storage areas on the ground and first floors. Work began in July 2012 with AC Mauger as the main contractor and completed February 2013.

The new build was of a steel frame construction, with rendered blockwork gables and piers, and insulated cladding to the elevations and roof. Internally, a steel framed mezzanine floor housed the glazed viewing area, storage areas, and ground floor workshops. In order to allow full height commercial access to the ground floor, automated Roller Shutters were installed into the gables either end of the recycling hall, to each of the 5 workshops to the western elevation, and to allow forklift access to the storage areas, shutters were also installed to the 1st floor gables.

Externally included the installation of a Sustainable Drainage Cellular Rainwater Water Harvesting Tank, located beneath the main concrete concourse.  Designed, supplied and installed by a specialist manufacturer, the system stores rainwater run off from the building in a tank consisting of cellular PVC blocks wrapped up and sealed within an impermeable rubber membrane. The tank stores water during period of high rainfall which is pumped out to be used by the Parish to wash down vehicles and irrigation.

The building fit out incorporated LED lighting technology throughout, with an increased emphasis on lighting controls in order to reduce unnecessary lighting costs and energy waste. PIR Radiant Ceramic Heaters were also specified within the workshops as further method for reducing energy costs.

“Working with A C Mauger Construction was a pleasure; they always had a can-do attitude and would always be forthcoming with suggestions to improve specific details.   A C Mauger Construction team were extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the construction process, a special thank you has to be given to the three main people from A C Mauger Construction who I had the pleasure in dealing with throughout the project, James Joseph, Neal Taylor and the foreman on site David Apperley.

The Parish are delighted with the end result, after so many years in the making; it is fantastic to see the end article which has exceeded expectations, a big thank you to A C Mauger Construction for delivering us a building that we can be proud of" Silvio Alves ACIAT, ACIOB, ABEng Manager, T&E Services
