Work to recycle 3,000 tonnes of concrete rubble, 1,000 tonnes of brickwork and 250 tonnes of steelwork is already underway with the concrete rubble to be used on a planned 100,000 sq ft industrial development on the adjacent 6.7 acre Mossland Drive site.
Julia Cheung Buchanan, Senior Development Manager at Hillington Park said: “Sustainability and environmental improvements are core to all new developments and refurbishments at Hillington Park. Our intended use for the 3,000 tonnes of concrete rubble on the site of a new development on Mossland Drive reflects that with the other materials going back into the construction recycling industry.
“The demolition of the former Bensons and Harveys building was completed over a six-week period, on schedule and to plan, and included the safe removal and disposal of 100 tonnes of asbestos leaving a prominent and desirable site on the busy Hillington Road ready for future development.”
The 3.7 acre site is located opposite the Arnold Clark HQ on Hillington Road and next to the two popular drive thru outlets operated by Starbucks and Bayne’s The Family Bakers and has Planning Permission in Principle for automotive sales, repair and servicing.
