The construction team working on a £13m new ward block at Lister Hospital in Stevenage has received an award for recycling 10 tonnes of reusable waste.
Community Wood Recycling presented VINCI Construction UK with a certificate to acknowledge the vast amount of material from the project site which has been reused and recycled. The recycled waste will not only save resources but create jobs, training and volunteering opportunities for disadvantaged people.
VINCI Construction UK is carrying out phase four of the hospital’s redevelopment and has been working with Community Wood Recycling during the project.
Elizabeth Green from Community Wood Recycling (NCWRP), said: “We are delighted to be working with VINCI Construction UK on this project. As well as showing great commitment to recycling, their support has enabled us to provide a second chance for local people who find it tough to get into the workforce.”
The four-storey ward will sit adjacent to the emergency department, providing an acute admissions unit, shared accommodation, a coronary care unit and a high dependency unit with medical beds.
