Tippers R Us have just completed a new recycling centre in Kesgrave near Ipswich. It is designed to handle in the region of 2,000 tonne of material a day using a concrete retaining wall system to create bays to store a variety of products including construction and demolition waste as well as crushed materials and recycled stone and sands.
To process the materials, a new aggregates wash plant was to be installed - which is where JMS came in, in the shape of Ian Cannons, Peter Hansen and Alex Smith.
JMS were appointed to design the foundation bases and associated support structures on which the new plant would be installed.
Part of the equipment was designed in Italy by specialist manufacturer COMEC, situated in Treviso, Venice which was to integrate with the main processor, designed and manufactured by McCloskey Equipment in Didcot.
The heavy duty machinery combines crushers, vibrating screeners, trommel screeners as part of the waste recycling plant.
Heavy duty running 24 x 7 needs well designed and constructed foundations - heavy duty foundations.
Our job was to liaise with the international design team to provide a package of structural calculations, details and drawings.
The images here, show the work in various stages of construction.
Following the successful construction and installation, we have been appointed to design a sheet pile wall for a water storage facility.
Great teamwork internally and externally - well done to all involved.
We add value to every project we have been,
are, and will be equally proud to support.
