Project: Waste processing machinery and plant fit-out within a 5,000m2 building.
Services: Project Management
RIBA Project Stages: 5-6
The Oakleaf Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) at Stanwell Moor, near Heathrow, was designed to process 150,000 tonnes of commercial and industrial waste per annum enabling metals, plastics, wood, paper and card to be separated.
Any waste not separated is processed further to produce a Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF), which can be used as an alternative to fossil fuels.
The 5,000 msq building, which houses the waste reception area, processing equipment and storage bays, also includes an extensive fire detection and suppression system.
