Design of Resource Recovery Parks and Transfer Stations

This type of work involves upgrades to existing facilities or the development of new facilities.  Typically, design activities include reviewing waste data, regularity requirements, and operational logics, consultation with stakeholders, preparing a development plan, and final design.  MWH has carried such work on a number of Resource Recovery Parks (RRP’s) throughout New Zealand.

SDP1Alexandra Resource Recovery Centre – review of concept layout planning

Client: Central Otago District Council

In 2011, MWH worked with the Central Otago District Council and the Central Otago Waste Busters to develop a site development plan that improved traffic flow, material storage, and social and educational opportunities.

MWH reviewed the site and operation, assessing possible layout options, liaising with Council and Waste Busters staff, and facilitating an optioneering workshop.

SDP2Southbrook Resource Recovery Centre – Review of preliminary design

Client: Waimakariri District Council

South Brook Resource Recovery Park required an upgrade to improve diverted material management by developing a new recyclables drop off area, a new recyclables processing area, and a new road layout.

In 2010, MWH peer reviewed the preliminary design report, including materials management requirements, resource consents, traffic design, and site layout.

SDP3Richmond Resource Recovery Centre

Client: Tasman District Council

This project involved upgrading the existing transfer station part of the resource recovery centre and developing the remainder of the site to better manage diverted material, develop a more user friendly site, and improve traffic flow.

In 2009,MWH was responsible for the review of waste data, preparation of a strategic development plan and a long term strategic layout, preparing preliminary design options based on the strategic development plan, carrying out detailed design on the preferred option (which involved weighbridge relocation), negotiating with incumbent operations and haulage contractors around construction activities on the site, managing the procurement process, consents and risk management, and monitoring site construction activities.
