“We wanted a fast build solution that could take a good hammering from our Plant”

North West Construction Limited is a family run business that has been established for over 20 years. A large, professional construction company based in Birkenhead, they provide a wide range of commercial construction and demolition services. Following a recent strategy review, they have developed an efficient recycling enterprise that collects and sorts mixed waste from a variety of sources.

With an impressive list of customers in the public sector, the Bromborough sortation centre has grown rapidly and required a straightforward and effective solution for separating waste types. Block Walls provided the answer.

The Challenge

Heavy plant unload, store and compact mixed waste in large volumes on a busy recycling site. A series of functional concrete segregation bays were required to give the site a sense of order and clarity.

Although traditional walls were considered (which North West Construction could clearly have built themselves) a more robust solution was required to ensure longevity. Local business Block Walls manufacture stackable concrete blocks interestingly produced from 87% recycled materials.

The Solution

100 Load blocks were used to form concrete segregation bays by interlocking the 1066 KG heavy-duty concrete rectangles. Block Walls design team planned the number and format of the build so the install ran quickly and smoothly. The flexibility of the design means structures can be dismantled easily to form new layouts based on demand.

Another key feature for recyclers especially is the A1 fire resistance of the product, perfect when dealing with flammable waste streams. In summary the build time, practicality and cost benefits added up to a straightforward decision for North West Construction.

Product features include: Excellent mechanical impact and heat resistance; quick to build; cost effective; and easily re-configured.

North West Construction’s Director of Recycling, Alex Ross commented:

“The speed of build and cost-effectiveness of the segregation bays are impressive. The L-shaped or U-shaped configuration was ready to use in hours and can withstand the daily battering our loaders and dozers dish out.”
