BBC HQ CENTRAL SQUARE – CARDIFF

This is the second time that Atlantic has had an involvement with a BBC development. Back in 2010, Atlantic provided skips to Vinci the main contractor who developed 15,800 sq. m. television production studios in the BBC’s state-of-the-art Drama Village at Cardiff Bay.

Costing in the region of £25m, the new Roath Lock studios create a centre of excellence for the production of drama as part of the BBC’s plans to double television network production from Wales by 2016. Programmes being made in Cardiff include Casualty, Doctor Who and the Welsh-language, S4C soap Pobol y Cwm.

Waste Reduction
Monitoring and minimising waste was one of the key priorities for the project.
At the BBC Drama Village the project team:
– Used the Constructing Excellence Green Compass scheme to source accredited local waste handlers.
– Promoted re-use of materials within the community.
– 24.97% of the total recycled waste was given to community organisations such as Reseiclo.
– Sought to eliminate waste at source, i.e design out waste and determine innovative ways of re-using those materials left over from the construction process.
40,000 tonnes of spoil has been retained on site as opposed to being disposed of elsewhere.
5,000 tons of this waste was incorporated back into the development and the remaining material was processed on site for future re-use.
– Sought to use re-cycled materials.
– Placed emphasis on sourcing local materials and resources.
– 78% of suppliers came from within a 20 mile radius.
– 96% of waste produced was diverted from landfill.
– The plasterboard re-cycled on the project would be enough to build 8 small family homes.

Atlantic’s unique audit trail for waste processing was a key requirement on this project.
