Waste Treatment Plant, Wakefield
We undertook the architectural and landscape design for this major private finance initiative (PFI) bid, on behalf of engineering specialists Babcock, following a protracted tender process.
The project involves four sites in the Wakefield area. The largest is an eco-park which occupies a nine hectare former colliery site and incorporates facilities to handle all domestic waste generated by the local authority area for the next 25 years.
The facilities include autoclaves, anaerobic digestion, materials recycling facility, composting, combined heat and power plant, household waste recycling centre and a visitors’ centre. The latter is an environmentally-friendly building to be constructed, where possible, using recycled materials, and incorporating rain water collection and recovered heat.
