Design, Build & Contract Management

As infrastructure is developed careful design, construction and contract management support is required to ensure efficient and effective project realisation across the four key stages of project delivery:

  • Pre-construction
  • Construction & Commissioning
  • Operations
  • Decommissioning and closure

SLR provides technology support across the full waste management resource supply chain including the following:

  • Landfill and transfer – including inert, hazardous, industrial and non-hazardous landfills, as well as leachate treatment facilities and waste transfer stations.
  • Waste recovery – including all forms of residual waste treatment such as energy from waste (EfW) technologies, Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) and other fuel preparation facilities (SRF/RDF),  Advanced Thermal treatment (ATT) and autoclave.
  • Recycling and reprocessing  technologies – such as clean or dirty materials recycling facilities (MRF’s).
  • Organics treatment – either aerobically (composting) or anaerobically (Anaerobic Digestion producing biogas).
  • Waste collection systems – including bins, boxes, vehicles as well as automated underground collection, diversion and storage systems.
