Process - Process Intensive
Melia Smith & Jones have a good understanding of how processes interact with their buildings and infrastructure. On process intensive projects the building works, whilst important, must be properly co-ordinated with the process engineers to develop workable schemes. Designs must also be flexible to allow for continuous process design development as the civil works are being constructed.
Tunnel Tech (Stage 1 Mushroom Compost)
The concrete bunkers, 8m in cross section and each 50m long are used to make first stage mushroom compost. MSJ subsequently did projects for the 2nd and 3rd stages.
MSJ were appointed by Biffa to assist in development and costing the civil works on a new IVC plant near Derby. MSJ then took on the lead designer role for the Civil Contractor, covering all aspects of the civil design.
Following on from Etwall, Biffa won the bid for green waste composting contracts in Warwickshire. Biffa re-assembled the Etwall team to build the new facility. MSJ were appointed as the civil designers.
