Temple Mills Depot (Eurostar)

Sustainability Sciences supported Amey in developing an overall environmental and social sustainability plan for proposed upgrades at Temple Mills Depot required to support rolling stock maintenance requirements. 

As part of this work a detailed resource efficiency plan was developed together with other project contractors in order to reduce wastage and resource demand. Whole life carbon emission assessments were also undertaken, developing ground breaking knowledge and expertise in the whole life carbon process and showing the potential impact of construction stage innovation and action on whole life carbon.

Key Success Factors

Completed PAS 2080 whole life carbon assessment

Significant on-site material re-use through integration with other depot projects
