      This demolition project was linked to the development and build of the new Southampton Cruise Terminal.   

      K&B Crushers were initially tasked with providing operated excavators and a jaw crusher to undertake the crushing of the hardcore and concrete arisings from the primary phases of demolition. These materials were crushed to a 6F5 specification which was then removed from the site as a recycled aggregate.  K&B Crushers assisted with the organising and removal of this aggregate from the site feeding other local construction projects.

      We then moved on to assist with the next phase of works in backing up the demolition with operated excavators with breaker and mechanical pulveriser attachments to process some of the concrete demolition arisings from the various concrete floors, beams and structure of the concrete silos.  

      The next phase of crushing works required the materials to be crushed to a variety of specifications.  6F5 aggregate which was to then be moved from the site in the same manner as phase 1.  Moving on to the recycling production of 6F2 material and Type 1 material, both of which were to be retained on-site for re-use.  This required a large operation with 2 crushing teams which consisted of excavators, crushers, screeners and loading shovels to complete this large scale crushing operation in the time frame required for project completion.  

      A total well in excess of 20,000 tonnes of hardcore and concrete material was recycled into crushed aggregate on this project.
