Design and Construct

Project Description

Design and construct and commission a new waste disposal facility to convert general solid waste into compost.

The site was once the Woodlawn Open Cut Mine which produced zinc, lead and copper ore until 1998. Veolia established a waste disposal facility for Sydney’s southern suburbs general waste at the site. Veolia also uses the disposal of by-products to generate electricity.

The environmental approval granted to Veolia to use the Woodlawn mine site as a waste disposal facility requires the property to be rehabilitated for agricultural use. To achieve this, the MBT Facility was designed to convert, 144,000 tonnes of general solid waste into 40,000 tonnes of compost each year to be used as clean fill material.

The Woodlawn MBT Facility will increase the resource recovery capabilities of the Woodlawn site, through the production of compost from the organic fraction of waste. This will assist the municipal and commercial sectors to meet their resource recovery targets set by the NSW Government.

“Lipman have worked very hard at building a solid relationship between all of the parties, their subcontractors, themselves and us as the client and that’s really paid off in being able to discuss all sorts of issues and definitely in being able to deal with the changeover of builder where Lipman took over one of our projects in midstream. It enabled us to speak frankly and with trust and know that we were entering into a relationship that was going to be positive. They’re now delivering the product, they have taken months out of the project and the quality of the product is magnificent.

They just recognise that clients are looking for different things these days. They’re about the relationship, about making the job work and they’re serious about what they do. They give everybody a go and that goes from the site staff all the way up to the MD. It’s been good working with all of them and they have all had that same positive attitude, the culture of the organisation is continuous all the way through and it’s just a delight to work with them.

The relationship is such within the site team, that they actually all go and have a meal together at ‘smoko’ and lunch each day. There is always plenty of laughing and carrying on coming out of the lunch room and that’s the site staff and the office staff; ‘the whole shooting match’. I think that really develops a one family sort of approach and I know its supported all the way through the organisation”
