Reusable hoarding at renaissance Trevenson Gateway
What does responsible development look like? Maybe Trevenson Gateway provides an answer: reuse. A reused site secured with reusable hoarding.
The waste hierarchy places reuse above recycling in the action we should take to minimise waste. And re-use is what the Trevenson Gateway is all about.
An old industrial site has been brought back to life. A true renaissance. With the unanimous backing of the local Carn Brea Parish Council, a long derelict industrial site is reborn. A Travelodge Hotel, a Marston’s pub, and a KFC and Costa coffee will soon provide service and employment.
The site has close proximity to the A30. Also Camborne Retail Park and Cornwall College, Trevenson Gateway are nearby. Transport links public and private are reused.
Reusable hoarding is the responsible choice
But reuse went beyond just the choice of site. Working with developer Brady Construction, Perimeters supplied its reusable site hoarding and gates to secure the site during the build phase. After the 9 month construction phase but before the site opened, the hoarding was carefully dismantled. The dismantled hoarding was then made ready for yet reuse. In the case of Trevenson Gate, over 95% of the materials in the hoarding were recovered could be prepared for reuse. The small amount of material that couldn’t be reused due to mechanical damage as sent for recycling.
Each meter of Perimeters hoarding in use diverts 45kg of from landfill. So the choosing Perimeters reusable hoarding at Trevenson Gateway, compared to single use timber composite hoarding, this one site literally prevented thousands of kilograms of polluting waste being sent to landfill. Now that’s responsible development.
