Located in Shepperton in northern Surrey, the site has a history of managing waste since the 1950s. Previously the site had been used for landfill and housed an incinerator.
The project at Eco-Park will redevelop and extend the scope of its waste management for generations to come.
Our role in the re-development is to provide access to the site through scaffolding, enabling high level works and construction of the new development to take place.
By supporting and working with all involved at Eco-Park we are proud to support a project that will aid the local community and reduce the environmental impact on the local area. The benefits of Eco park will lead to:
With the use of new technology "safetime" and with such a large quantity of scaffolding on the site we are able to ensure all the access platforms are safe and useable.
In conjunction with M+W Group and Devine Direct Labour, we worked together to help improve the local environment with the construction of a new boat house at the Shepperton Swan Sanctuary
The Eco Park has a pond on site, and the team noticed that a swan had taken up residence there. Noticing that the swan seemed to be growing weaker and concerned for the swan’s welfare, the project team contacted local charity, The Swan Sanctuary.
The Swan Sanctuary sent their resident animal rescuer Steve to the Eco Park to assess the situation, who decided it was in the swan’s best interest to be transferred to the Charity’s Swan sanctuary. The project team was invited to visit the sanctuary and the bird they had helped rescue. Whilst visiting, M+W Group Site Manager, John Shannon noted that the boat shed the charity used was in a terrible state of disrepair. John promptly had discussions with Scott Lyons from Rodells Scaffolding and Pat Devine from DDL, who offered to supply the material and labour to carry out this much needed work.
The completed boat house was handed over to Swan Sanctuary Founder and Trustee Dorothy Beeson, MBE BEM (Dot) on the 7th July. In a letter of thanks, Dot expressed how appreciated the new boat house was and explained that it was already drawing attention form visitors including the Mayor of Spelthorne.
John Shannon stated, “I am really pleased M+W Group and our sub-contractors could assist the Swan Sanctuary with their new boat house. We always support the local charities within the communities that we are working in.”
