We have been appointed by Farrans Construction to carry out the mechanical and electrical works at the new Keynsham Recycling Hub at Pixash Lane near Bath, Somerset for client Bath & North East Somerset Council.

This design and build project is for the delivery of a modern public Re-use and Recycling Centre, Material Recovery Facility and an MOT Centre. The site also includes a salt barn, ancillary offices and welfare facilities. The facility will make it easier for local residents to recycle and help reduce general waste and operational costs.

The project is being designed with careful consideration of all environmental factors as the Council aims to achieve Net Carbon Zero by 2030. The scheme includes over 700kW of Photovoltaic Panels, a Rainwater Harvesting System capable of storing 80,000 litres, intelligent lighting controls and 16 Electric Vehicle Charging Points. There will also be infrastructure provision for further future electric vehicle charging installations as the client hopes to have a fully electric fleet of vehicles in the coming years.
