Renescience is a unique waste and recycling center, creating innovative solutions for managing waste, recycling more of our rubbish and turning it into something we can re-use. Previously in 2016 Robinson Structures provided Orsted, formerly known as Dong Energy, with the main 300 tonne Waste Management Facility along with a 65 tonne DTB building shortly after. The main building using Galvanized steel and the DTB using primed steel.
In 2019, Robinson Structures were tasked with installing two halls to extend the storage for the recycling center, a Sorting hall and a Reactor hall with associated lifting beams. This extension provided better facilities for Orsted allowing them to create more green energy at a quicker pace.
During production, each area of work required multiple different finishes including galvanized steel, high specification primer and intumenscent with varying requirements of 1 and 2 hours fire resistance.
Completion of off-site intumescent allowed the programme on site to be reduced to work with Orstead requirements.
Work was scheduled to a tight programme due to the client having to close down production whilst work was carried out. Energy production was not able to recommence until the extension was complete. The steelwork was completed on programme which allowed Orsted to continue with production as agreed.
“The works carried out by the Robinson team for the installation of all 4 extension buildings was first class, amazing flexibility in a fast paced an ever changing project design. With your professionalism and knowledge during this testing time, there were no delays in this quality project”
