Thames Enterprise Park has taken a major step towards the economic development of the site of the former Coryton Refinery with the appointment of specialist contractor Brown and Mason to demolish the redundant refinery and boiler house.
A vision prepared by the owners of Thames Enterprise Park for creation of a centre of excellence in energy and environmental technologies won the support of Thurrock Council’s Cabinet on 2 July 2014. Up to 400 acres of the 580-acre former refinery site is to be used for Thames Enterprise Park, with 122 acres immediately available and another 70 acres to be freed up by the clearance of the refinery.
Under Brown and Mason’s contract, structures will be demolished down to the level of the concrete base, asbestos will be safely removed from the site, some units will be cleaned or decontaminated before removal and materials will be segregated to maximise potential for waste recycling.
