McGee helps to deliver a new Mechanical and Biological Treatment facility in Basildon
A new Mechanical and Biological Treatment (MBT) facility in Basildon, Essex, is currently being built by The Urbaser Balfour Beatty (UBB) consortium on a 25 acre site. The facility will be capable of treating up to 417,000 tonnes of municipal waste a year. The facility will also incorporate a visitor and education centre for the benefit of the wider community.
McGee has been employed as a sub-contractor to Balfour Beatty to carry out all civil and concrete works in constructing the new household waste treatment facility. Major civil works were involved to facilitate the start of the construction process.
The structural element of the project encompasses the construction of a series of facilities which form and maintain the recycling process line.
Whilst the works were successfully secured in competitive tender, we were actively involved in the final design, coordination and buildability issues both throughout the tender process and construction period.
The waste treatment plant is the first ever constructed by Urbasser/Balfour Beatty in the UK.
