The new Veolia Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility in Leeds is a distinctive iconic building on the Leeds skyline with its slimline chimney stack design and the 42 metre height creating a positive landmark for the Aire Valley region of Leeds and the Cross Green Industrial Estate.
The Veolia facility is designed to remove recyclable waste from black bins and recover energy from what is left over. It will significantly reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill.
With the volume of waste going through the site and the machinery required to handle the waste there was an essential requirement for the Veolia Site Maintenance Team to have a functional workshop space to perform their work effectively.
Avanta UK amongst others were invited work closely with the maintenance team to design, deliver and install a high quality workshop with equipment that is built to last. Avanta UK is the Bott Dealer Partner for the Leeds area and put forward their comprehensive range which offers a 10 year guarantee along with steel and mesh partitioning.
The equipment provided included: –
Single Skin Steel Partitioning – To enclose the upstairs area on the concrete mezzanine floor and to divide the upstairs area.
Mesh Cage – To provide a secure welding area.
14 Workbenches – Including 9x Storage Workbenches with multiple drawer options, 4x Workbenches with Vices & 1x large Bespoke Workbench
5 Cabinets – Including large Roller Shutter Cabinets
2 Cleaning Stations
7 Chairs and Stools
The project was completed in time for the site to be handed over to Veolia from the Contractor.
