Essex Residual Waste PFI Cory Environmental
Race Cottam supported Cory Environmental in their PFI bid for the waste treatment contract for Essex County Council and Southend-on-Sea Council. This project utilised mechanical biological treatment with in-vessel composting to maximise the amount of solid recovered fuel from the residual waste.
Our expertise in the waste sector enabled us to actively engage with the different technology providers and develop an integrated masterplan that was cost effective and design led. Our design developed an organic form to screen the process activities and integrated an office and visitor centre into the main building with viewing walkways and roof top areas. An extensive landscaped area was created to provide an attractive ‘front’ to the scheme.
