A Commitment to Sustainability and Community

Weaver Demolition recently donated 1,200 tonnes of recycled aggregates to Bath & North East Somerset (BANES) council for the creation of a new skate park in Temple Cloud in the Chew Valley. As a company that has been established in this area for over 55 years, we were delighted to support this local project.

Temple Cloud Parish Council raised money through a crowdfunding programme to create a pump track in the village where local people could bike, skate, roller blade or scooter. The park provides a safe and fun place for local children and teenagers to skate and play, and is a valuable addition to the area.

The Temple Cloud skate park features a variety of obstacles, including quarter pipes, ramps and rails as well as a bowl section for more advanced riders. The park is open to the public and is free to use, making it a popular destination for local residents and visitors alike.

The skate park was built with the help of local businesses and community members, including Weaver Demolition. With the donation of our recycled aggregates, the park was built with high-quality sustainable materials.

The aggregate materials donated for this project originated from a number of our demolition projects throughout the South West and were then processed and recycled into quality materials at our crushing and screening facility. Not only does this activity reduce waste and promote sustainability, it has also ensured that the materials used for the skate park were of the highest quality.

In addition to our commitment to the community, Weaver Demolition is also dedicated to promoting sustainability and reducing waste in all of our projects. We have invested in state-of-the-art equipment to ensure we are able to recycle as much material as possible, and are always looking for new ways to reduce our environmental impact.

Crushing and Screening Aggregates

Using recycled aggregates in construction projects can provide a number of benefits which include:

  1. Environmental benefits: Recycling aggregates reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills, which helps to conserve natural resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It also reduces the need for new quarries and mining operations, which can have a significant impact on the environment.
  1. Cost savings: Using recycled aggregates can be more cost-effective than using virgin materials, as it reduces the need for transportation and processing of new materials. This can result in significant cost savings for construction projects.
  1. Durability: Recycled aggregates can be just as durable as virgin materials, and can be used in a variety of construction applications, including roadways, foundations, and building structures.
  1. Consistency: Recycled aggregates can be processed to meet specific size and quality requirements, which ensures consistency in the materials used for construction projects.
  1. Local sourcing: Using recycled aggregates can help to support local economies, as the materials are often sourced from local construction projects and demolition sites.

Overall, using recycled aggregates in construction projects can provide a range of benefits, from environmental and cost savings to durability and consistency. It is a sustainable and responsible choice that can help to reduce waste and promote a more sustainable future for the construction industry, while also providing high-quality materials for projects like the Temple Cloud skate park.
