Development of the existing infrastructure to create a new facility for the handling, processing, and export of scrap metal.
Works involve the demolition of an existing shed and hardstanding, and the construction of a new metals handling facility for storage and processing of scrap metal. Works also include extensive reinforced concrete paved areas and a piled relieving slab to enable heavy plant to load scrap metal products onto vessels.
In addition to the construction of a new office building, end of life vehicle facility, maintenance shed, and other storage sheds, two weighbridges will also be installed, along with new fencing around the entire site, including an acoustic screen to the northern perimeter.
The existing entrance, which connects the site to King’s Inch Road, will be upgraded as part of the works. This will serve as the main entrance to the new facility.
