    Knights Brown adopted an ECI role on this project to build up a target cost, helped develop the design and influenced the whole-life environmental impact of the waste management centre.

    The works comprised construction of a waste transfer hall with separate loading bay, a high-level public access skip area, a waste electrical and electronic equipment building, a weighbridge, offices and welfare accommodation for the workforce. There was also an improved junction onto the A35, an exceptionally busy trunk road and the main through route to the South West.

    Value engineering initiatives included:
    • Changing the steel frame of the waste transfer hall to a portal-frame structure, saving on assembly time and costs.
    • Improving the ground conditions with lime-stabilisation allowing the access road to be built without wasteful import and disposal.
    • Working with the council’s environmental health team to remediate the site, burying Japanese Knotweed to a depth of 6m, in-line with current legislation, avoiding disposal costs.
    • Switching to a single service conduit, in lieu of four, achieving a five-figure saving for our client.

    our sectors

    Malcolm & I would like to thank yourself and Guy for working with us and our design team in delivering a superb finished product for FloPlast that we are very proud of and which has been much admired by our customers on site visits.  So far so good, we are finding our operational feet on the site and it all appears to be working well.

    - Bryan Lynch, Floplast

    Knights Brown performed very well on this project in terms of quality, cost and time. The team worked very well as part of an integrated delivery team with the Employer to the benefit of the project

    - Marc Bryan, Portsmouth City Council

    Sites are always very well presented. First impressions count and if a site looks well organised and clean when you arrive then generally this is applied throughout the management of the projects. Indeed, all five projects I am Cummins PM for, have been managed to a high standard and equally the safety records and standards are very good.

    - Iain Brooks, Cummins

    Site staff were pleased to have had Knights Brown on the team, they were proactive from day one to the end towards potential issues and responsive to a changing site environment for works.
