One of the most iconic buildings in the art world, The Tate Modern, received a much needed £260m extension. The space opens up rooms for more works to be displayed including 50% of the solo rooms dedicated to works by women.
The project began in 2009 and was completed in 2016, creating a 200ft structure in the panoramic London skyline. The 336,000 bricks which make up the external cladding are in keeping with the existing structures, but with a literal twist to the design.
A project of this size required dedicated waste management, with the supply of skips and the removal of hazardous waste. At Powerday we are proud to have been a part of such an important piece of construction history in the 21st Century.
We were pleased to have awarded this contract to Powerday. They have delivered their services efficiently and reliably, achieved high recycling rates and 100% recovery, meeting our requirements throughout the project. They have been easy to deal with, reasonable and fair. We have been particularly impressed with their account management and waste reporting capabilities
