In January 2020 the recycling division of the Doocey Group, a leading multi-disciplined civil engineering and utility contractor, contacted Elite Precast Concrete about their Legato interlocking blocks.
Doocey’s plan was to build three new Zappshelters; these covered areas were to be used to store recycled construction and demolition waste and utility excavation arisings.
The Legato blocks, manufactured by Elite, proved to be the ideal way to both segregate the recycled materials and to support the Zappshelter’s tension membrane roof system.
After taking delivery of Elite’s Legato blocks it took just three days to construct the walls of all three storage areas. The three new 14 x 12m roof structures were then quickly erected.
During construction Doocey was able to carry out uninterrupted recycling operations, keeping products correctly segregated and at a consistent moisture content. The shelters have also enabled Doocey to introduce SMR, a soil stabilising process that increases the recycle percentage, helping to further reduce Doocey’s carbon footprint.
"Elite’s help early on, delivery, products and price were first class, which helped the whole project run very smoothly and on budget. I would highly recommend Elite to anyone who needs their products."
