Specialised groundworks

A Derbyshire recycling company is investing £4m to upgrade its depot in Chesterfield with support from environmental, engineering and planning specialist Caulmert.

Metals and waste recycler Ward Recycling is redeveloping a 7.5-acre site so it will be able to process 60,000 tonnes a year of metal from the construction and demolition industries.

Nottingham-based Caulmert has been involved in the project since Ward bought the site last year. The planning specialist will provide a range of services including ground investigations, geotechnical surveys and flood risk assessments to progress the development.

Principal hydrogeologist Sarah Venning said: “The site has a history of industrial use, with the added complexity of underground coal mining in the area.

“Our investigations will include drilling approximately 30m into the ground to check for the presence of coal or underground mine workings, to ensure the safe development of the area. Ground investigations are underway.”
