Horsham MRMC


Client: M & W Group

Contract Value: £11,000,000

Contract Duration: 12 Months

The £1 billion (Euro 1.18 billion) plus deal will see Biffa and the M+W Group’s UK team construct the MBT facility next to its Brookhurst Wood landfill site near Horsham.
The Tamdown Group was awarded the groundworks and civil engineering packages after working in partnership with M +W Group in value engineering the proposals for the scheme.
Work is well underway on the complex and live waste site including a fully working brickworks. Works carried out by Tamdown include mass earthworks, soil nailing, retaining structures, piling and tunneling.
It is estimated the facility will save the Council around £300 million over the life of the contract with up to 80% of the residual waste set to be diverted from landfill. It will also significantly reduce the carbon footprint of household waste management in the County.
The MBT facility comprises an integrated mechanical sorting and anaerobic digestion plant and a visitors centre. The contract itself has created up to 80 new jobs in West Sussex.
It is planned that the plant will be operational in 2013 and when at full capacity will produce up to 3.5 MW of renewable energy, enough to power around 7,000 homes.
