Once demolished the bricks are taken to a waste transfer station on site - 97% are re-used as infill
With the range of facilities being built on each garrison from single living quarters to new offices and diners there will be over 200 separate construction sites – equivalent to an area twice the size of Hyde Park, using enough bricks to reach from London to Monte Carlo, and over 5,250 tonnes of mortar – more than the weight of 750 elephants!
So far 459 buildings have been demolished with around another 41 left to come down over the remainder of the eight year construction programme. Once demolished the bricks and other recyclables are taken to a waste transfer station located on site, from which 97% of the demolition waste is re-used onsite.
