Integrated Waste Management Facility, Southwark
RPS provided a multi-disciplinary role including Planning and Environmental services for this facility including Mechanical Biological Treatment, Waste Transfer Station, Household Waste Recycling Centre, Material Recycling Facility and Visitor Centre on congested former gas works site in London.
We undertook the planning application and coordination of the EIA. In addition, RPS were responsible for producing all of the studies included within the EIA including Air Quality, Hydrology, Ground Conditions, Ecology, Noise, Transport and Archaeology.
Planning consent was achieved in just 14 months. The Environmental Permit application was also handled by our team.
During the enabling works, RPS also undertook all Civil Engineering design which included lowering the level of the site, dealing with contaminated soil and constructing retaining walls at the site boundary resulting in over 50 party wall agreements which again RPS managed.
