Allerton Waste Transfer Station

We’re working with our client to provide a state-of-the-art waste treatment facility in North Yorkshire.

Plans for a modern waste treatment plant that will help to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill by a staggering 90% for householders in York and North Yorkshire are nearing completion. Once the final milestone is passed, construction on this exciting and transformative project is expected to get underway. Utilising the latest Revit modelling, our teams have worked closely with our client Amey/VINCI and have played a major part in developing the structural design for the transfer plant at Allerton Waste Recovery Park.

Making the most of household rubbish
Householders in York and North Yorkshire produce some 470,000 tonnes of refuse every year, with over half the rubbish ending up in a landfill. Thanks to the deployment of modern technologies, however, up to 320,000 tonnes or 90% of this rubbish will be reprocessed and recycled in future, which represents a considerable saving in terms of landfill capacity, as well as savings for local taxpayers. The new waste facility is expected to provide City of York Council and North Yorkshire County Council savings on their overall waste management costs for at least the next 25 years.

Waterman teams provide key solutions
Our skilled teams of engineers have provided a full range of specialist services towards the project, including environmental planning, ecology, remediation, auditing and design services, construction design, management co-ordination, structural and civil engineering, as well as electrical engineering services and designs for drainage systems. Our team also provided designs to S38 and S278 adoption standards for highway access.
