Overview

Road construction project.

Material Specification
1,000 tonnes of SHW Clause 803 Type 1 IBAA

Client
Bristol Waste Company

Construction

Construction of a split-level household recycling and re-use centre. Type 1 IBAA sub-base was used as an alternative to a primary aggregate. The road application was constructed with a layer of 150mm of Type 1 and Overlayed by 200mm Asphalt.

Benefit

IBAA is an extremely cost-effective material when compared to Primary Aggregates and BP UK is working towards a verified Carbon Footprint.

There are also advantages logistically when using IBAA due to the low density of the material allowing for fewer vehicle movements as this gives volumetric advantages over primary materials.
