Work has now commenced on the Seafield Depot Phase 2 project, a new waste transfer station and associated works in the North East of Edinburgh which is being delivered by CCG on behalf of Edinburgh City Council adjacent to the existing Seafield Community Recycling centre at Fillyside Road, Seafield.
The new site, which will accommodate garden waste, dry mixed recycling, mixed glass and mechanical sweepings waste streams, is scheduled for completion in summer 2018. Once finished it will help service a further new waste treatment centre at Millerhill, Dalkeith, which is to become operational late next year.
CCG have extensive experience in the construction of industrial-commercial units, most recently completing a 37,500 sq. ft. facility for Clyde Gateway that is currently used as an operational hub for BT.
The new waste transfer station at Seafield will be a single story commercial building with a brick façade which will replicate the aesthetic of other commercial buildings in the surrounding area.
Inside the building there will be four bays for refuse, a single accessible toilet and a lobby. There will be three pedestrian access doors on the north, east and south sides of the building. The works also include creation of new public access road from the Seafield Road.
Calum Murray, director of CCG said:
“CCG are delighted to start work on another project with City of Edinburgh Council. We have worked with the council for several years now ranging from large scale housing projects to planned maintenance. Our experience in the industrial-commercial sector is proven with various projects completed across Scotland and we look forward to bringing this experience in the development of the Seafield Depot.”
Transport and Environment Convener, Councillor Lesley Macinnes, said:
“The investment in a new waste transfer station at Seafield, to accompany the recently built depot, will help us to provide a more efficient and reliable service as well as providing our staff with modern working facilities. This development will also support our commitment to improve the city’s Waste and Cleansing service via the Waste and Cleansing Improvement Plan.”
