Full interior services for Gloucestershire recycling and energy plant

Pacy & Wheatley are very pleased to share our recent work at Urbaser Balfour Beatty (UBB) power and recycling centre, Gloucester. The project was initially tendered in early 2018 but following several revised tenders, we were asked to attend two interviews on site with the UBB project team. Fortunately, the outcome of our interview was successful, and we were appointed for a six-month contract for the value of £800,000 in June 2018.

UBB Gloucester is a joint venture from Urbaser and Balfour Beatty to sort and manage Gloucestershire's waste as an alternative to going to landfill. They safely deal with waste that cannot be recycled or composted by using it to produce the equivalent electricity to power 25,000 homes as part of Gloucestershire's renewable energy production. The facility diverts 90% of the County Council's waste from landfill, which in turn reduces methane production and produces sustainable aggregates. The centre also boasts a visitor centre, designed to allow schools and community groups to visit and learn more about recycling and energy production.

We began our Interior Fit Out Package of the admin block and visitor areas in August 2018 with a slight delay following construction issues on site. Problems with the shell construction allowed water ingress into the fit-out area, so we had to wait for that to be resolved before our work could start.

Pacy & Wheatley worked closely with UBB to completely waterproof the area on a temporary basis so we could commence work. Our services expanded to include installation of jumbo stud walls, decoration and finishes to three staircases going up four storeys high, and other additional work packages.

We're proud to have completed the interior fit-out in August 2019, in time for our revised completion date. The state-of-the-art power and recycling station is now operating and processing a substantial amount of household waste into energy.
