Lagan Construction at Beddington ERF

8th September 2017

Precision Brickwork Services have chosen to use Safestand® Access Systems as their preferred heavy duty low level working platform for building the blockwork walls on the £205m state-of-the-art Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) at the existing landfill and recycling site in Beddington, Sutton. Lagan Construction Group were awarded the contract on Viridor’s new Facility.

The site team also chose to use the revolutionary new masonry support systems, Wi Beams and Wi Columns, on this project.

The facility will provide the South London Waste Partnership and businesses with a safe and cost-effective alternative to landfill. It will also bring forward the completion and restoration of the existing landfill into green spaces and wildlife habitats.

The ERF has been designed to process around 275,000 tonnes of non-hazardous residual waste a year. Wider environmental benefits will include the landfill diversion of up to 95 per cent of waste delivered to the facility and the generation of up to 26MW of electricity, which will power the facility itself and supply over 22MW to the National Grid. It could also provide heat for local users.
