Temple Quays Phase 3, Bristol

Customer:South West Regional Development Agency

Value: £3.6 million

The project involved the remediation of the 3.44 hectare former Bristol Diesel Depot adjacent to Temple Meads Station in central Bristol.

The 35 week programme involved:

  • General excavation of 58,000m³ of material
  • The break-out of hard material and removal of existing foundations
  • Remediation of contaminated materials by soil washing
  • Crushing, screening and processing of site-won materials for recycling and re-use
  • Off-site disposal of contaminated material (7,000m³ hazardous and 7,000m³ non-hazardous)
  • Processing of 6,000m³ of hardstandings for re-use on-site
  • Infill of 56,000m³

The soil washing process involved a range of processes including separation by particle size, screening and crushing, attrition, de-sanding, de-silting, fines flocculation and sludge de-watering by centrifuge.

Approximately 35,000m³ of contaminated materials were treated to reduce concentrations of a variety of contaminants to specified target levels using plant designed and constructed in-house by VHE. VHE re-used approximately 80% of the treated material on-site. A daily average output of 700 tonnes was achieved.
