GB Card & Partners at Levenseat Rock Finger

GB Card & Partners has recently been on site at Levenseat in Scotland, a former rock quarry turned waste management facility, a project we have been involved with for almost a decade. GB Card & Partners have been providing long-term geotechnical engineering advice during the various phases of redevelopment at the facility.

Our involvement in the wider project includes advising on the redevelopment of the former sand quarry to ensure works are designed and undertaken in a safe manner and in accordance with Regulation 33 of the Quarries Act. Coal, ironstone and limestone workings underlie the site and GB Card & Partners also has the responsibility of checking and assessing for mine working collapse.

During our most recent visit, Managing Director Geoff Card inspected a new area of the quarry being redeveloped for an air particulate recovery plant, converting dust into cementitious material, part of the Levenseat Energy from Waste facility, the biggest recycling and energy plant in Scotland.

Levenseat Energy from Waste facility will produce enough energy to power 25,000 homes, diverting 5 million tonnes of waste from landfill, saving 1.3 million tonnes of CO2 emissions in the process. GB Card & Partners are proud to support the drive towards providing cleaner energy in the UK.
