HVC secured the contract to construct a new £2 million Clinical Waste Incinerator in Jersey in a competitive tender. The project involves the construction of a new Clinical Waste Incinerator building and the scope of works includes deep piled foundations, concrete slabs, steel frame, cladding, extensive mechanical and electrical installations and the incorporation of complex incinerator equipment.
The project, which is being built for the States of Jersey Department for Infrastructure, commenced in July 2017 and will be handed over in March 2018. So far, HVC have completed all groundwork and foundation works and have erected the streel frame and fixed the cladding. They have also embarked on mechanical and electrical first fix works. As part of the project, HVC are working alongside specialist sub-contractors MES who will be installing the cutting edge incinerator technology.
The new building is a replacement for the current building on Bellozanne, which will be de-commissioned, and is located at the La Collette reclamation site. Due to the location specialist foundations have been required.
Commenting on the project, Mark Farey, Managing Director of HVC said: “Works have progressed well so far, and despite recent inclement weather, we have maintained progress and programme. We look forward to delivering the project on time.
“This project is very very important to us. It is our first project in the island of Jersey and it is important that we provide a bench mark for all of our future projects here in terms of providing a high level of quality, value and service.”
HVC are set to construct a high specification five bedroom executive home as part of the redevelopment of Willow Grange. Work on the development, which is a two storey building, is due to begin in July 2018 with a completion date set for June 2019.
Mark Farey said: “The project came about when we noticed that the site had great potential for development. It is set well away from the main road and has a very attractive agricultural outlook.”
The company’s in-house architects are designing the project, supported by Mark Frampton Architects, and it is described as a “very modern building whilst utilising a large amount of local products and materials”.
Mark said: “The planning process has been complex insofar as the building has to be in keeping with the area (and look as though it has been there for a long time) and also that the building’s mass was not too big. We have had to incorporate a reduced level dig to ensure that the building’s mass is not too imposing.
“This project is also very important to us. This is the company’s third development following Clos de Pierre and Talbot Mews and the first that is aimed at the executive market. It is our aim to provide a first class product.”
