Wolverton Depot, Milton Keynes
A new Refuse Collection Facility for the Borough of Milton Keynes. The project comprises offices, meeting rooms and welfare facilities for 240 staff, an eight-bay refuse vehicle maintenance workshop including VOSA test bay, and parking, fuelling and washing facilities for over 80 vehicles.
The brief poses a number of challenges, the most important being safety given the number of vehicle movements. Our solution involves physically separating HGV and car traffic, and providing zoned, demarcated pathways to allow site operatives to safely access all the facilities.
Whilst the brief did not require BREEAM assessment, environmental awareness was implemented throughout the project. One, particularly innovative solution involved the two existing 40,000 litre water tanks in the middle of the site which had to be retained to supply the fire suppression system in the adjacent Materials Recycling Facility. As the MRF was required to drain the tanks every two weeks to avoid legionella build-up, CPMG obtained agreement to use the tanks as the water supply for the Depot’s vehicle wash area, putting to use water which would otherwise have been wasted.
