Pritchard Francis undertook design and documentation for a new state of the art $15M waste management and recycling depot for the Transpacific Industries Group at Cooya Poya, Karratha.
The Karratha Waste Management and Recycling facility includes weighbridge operations, collection and recycling of solid and packaged waste materials, plus liquid and hydrocarbon materials, along with bioremediation operations.
As lead consultant Pritchard Francis was responsible for civil, structural and building design services, along with coordination of sub consultants.
Specialist equipment supplied by the depot operator required significant coordination and liaison to ensure fit for purpose infrastructure. Environmental Management Plans were developed and approved to local authority and DEC requirements.
