We're providing Design and Commercial Management services for the South Clyde Energy Centre (SCEC), which is projected to play a significant role in supporting the Scottish Government’s landfill ban coming into effect at the end of 2025.

Delivering sustainability

Remarkably, the SCEC will divert up to 350,000 tonnes of residual, non-recyclable waste from landfill each year and is estimated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 67 kt CO2e per year compared to landfilling. It also has the potential to be retrofitted with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the future.

Project name

South Clyde Energy Centre (SCEC), Glasgow

Client 

AFRY Solutions UK Ltd, on behalf of Fortum and Green Investment Group (GIG)

AFRY is developing the project under an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management (EPCM) contract

Location 

Glasgow, UK

Services provided

  • Architecture
  • Civil & Structural Engineering
  • Building Services Engineering
  • Fire Engineering
  • Commercial Management: construction package procurement, package contract commercial management

Solution

Our specialist, multi-disciplinary team is vastly experienced in UK industrial building design and EfW projects specifically. We successfully reworked the design and negotiated with Glasgow City Council to streamline the process of amending the consent to avoid impacting the project programme.

By proactively collaborating with other project team members, we developed fully coordinated civil and building designs, ensuring a reflection of AFRY’s construction sequence and methodology in the design.

Our in-house fire engineering team was instrumental in thoroughly detailing the complex strategy required to ensure compliance with statutory regulations and insurance requirements.

Our design and commercial management team structured the packaging of the civils and building work to suit the project delivery methodology and programme, and the Building Warrant regulatory process particular to Scotland. The packaging was also specifically tailored to the UK market, ensuring tendering contractors were comfortable with the work scope within each package. We worked closely with AFRY and tendering contractors to ensure the procurement of early works packages was pragmatic and flexible.

Due to the technically complex nature of EfW projects, our previous experience is providing an invaluable baseline for design development. To readily identify project challenges and solutions, we hold internal workshop sessions. Interfaces between design disciplines are discussed and resolved, within the RPS team and the wider project team, including the process equipment suppliers and civils/building package contractors with design responsibility.

Our team are establishing rigour in the exchange of technical information and definition of requirements via a documented request for information (RFI) process. Within our design workshop sessions, review and close-out of RFIs became a regular focus.

As the design develops, we're effectively liaising with AFRY to ensure coordination between the building and civil Building Information Model (BIM) and process equipment. We agreed upon a regular exchange of models and are resolving critical issues in focused coordination meetings.
