Internal & external alterations to the Intercontinental Hotel, together with alterations and additions to the roof of the hotel tower, and minor demolition to facilitate these works, in compliance with the approved envelope under Concept SSD 7693.
Washbox is a NSW owned and developed technology. The product is Australian made. Washbox is a hired solution that eliminates liquid waste from construction and refurbishment activities by recycling the washwater generated by construction trades. Without Washbox the standard procedures can include unlawful dumping of this waste into the sewer, or to ground. We would encourage a specification for this project to recycle washwater generated by trades and eliminate liquid waste discharge from the site. This is not only in order to comply with relevant regulations and legislation, but also to meet reasonable community expectations of environmental controls and sustainability. I have attached a copy of the waste management plan submitted by Richard Crookes Constructions for the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct project where they specified and use Washbox. Washbox is also used at Barangaroo and Darling Harbour.
