“When money’s not for burning, call in GBH...” says Jonathan

GBH recently completed a £30,000 project to supply and install approximately 700 metres of mains cold water, firemain, process rainwater and rainwater recovery pipework for the new EFW (Energy From Waste) plant at Four Ashes, Stafford...

The Incinerator has a 300,000 tonnes per year capacity – generating enough power from waste for some 32,000 homes and helping Staffordshire County Council provide sustainable waste management to 2020 and beyond, to adopt a “zero waste to landfill” philosophy and to utilise waste as a resource wherever possible.

Flexibility is key
GBH Managing Director Trevor Davies comments that the Energy from Waste plant was constructed on a contaminated site which called for flexibility on GBH’s part:- “Firstly, the project required the installation of barrier pipe to prevent contamination of the water supplies,” he said.

“As a result of the constraints on site and to accommodate the lengthy pipework installation period, plus the difficulties of restricted site logistics, flexibility was key and something we take in our stride at GBH!”

Job well done
LX Engineering of Sheffield, an M&E Services provider across a diverse range of market sectors, commissioned GBH for the project and Jonathan Lazenby - a Project Manager with LX - said Four Ashes was a very competitive tender to win:- “Essentially it came down to price and GBH were very helpful in this respect; as to the project itself GBH delivered a quality installation, good service and a job well done...”

“On the back of this success - our first EFW plant - we are looking forward to two more similar projects currently at development stage.”
