Powerday has begun work with Redrow Homes at the historic police training centre at Hendon.
The 22 hectare site was previously owned by the Metropolitan Police and used as an operational training centre since the 1930s. Being transformed by the North London division of Redrow Homes, Colindale Gardens as it is now known, will benefit from over 2,900 new homes, retail units, a gym, primary school and nursery as well as cycle routes and green open spaces. Within easy reach of central London on the Northern line, the development is proving popular with buyers with one, two and three bedroom apartments selling fast.
One of the UK’s leading housebuilders, Redrow Homes is committed to delivering across all areas of sustainability and has a 2018 target of diverting over 95% of waste away from landfill.
Powerday is providing full waste management services to the development including skips, roll on roll off’s and dustcarts with waste being processed for 100% recovery at Old Oak Sidings less than eight miles from Collingdale Gardens. The PAS402 certified company will also be providing comprehensive, industry leading recycling reporting to enable Redrow Homes North London to be able to confidently assess their recycling performance.
“After assessing our options for the waste management on site, we were happy to partner with Powerday. They have excellent facilities, a modern fleet, and are able to report accurately on recycling and service performance which will enable us to exceed our sustainability target”. Andy Whiting, Head of Construction, Redrow Homes North London
“We are delighted to be working with Redrow Homes. The whole project team took the time to evaluate our capability to provide the best waste management solution for this landmark development so it’s very satisfying to be awarded the job”. Simon Little, Sales & Marketing Director, Powerday
