Grimshaw bags Suffolk waste plant job

  • Comment

Grimshaw has landed the contract to design a new energy-from-waste facility in Suffolk

Backed by recycling and resource management company SITA UK, the scheme features a Bottom Ash Recovery Facility and will house an educational centre.

According to the practice, the plant will process 269,000 tons of waste per year generating electricity for the equivalent of 30,000 homes.

A Grimshaw spokesman said: ‘The brief clearly stated that the design must be sympathetic to Suffolk’s rural setting.

‘The scheme creates a building which reflects both the industrial agricultural heritage of Suffolk and the constantly changing character of the “Suffolk sky”, appearing different depending on the time of day, the time of year and perspective from which it is seen.’

A planning application for the scheme is expected to be submitted in December 2010.
