The Juniors Kingsford

Paynter Dixon continues to explore opportunities for recycling used building materials.

For Tim Kurniadi, General Manager of Remedial, the challenge is to “make sure our carbon footprint isn’t beyond what we can alter.”

Overseeing façade recladding of The Juniors Club in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, our Remedial team is currently working with a recycling business to reduce cladding waste.

Almost 900 square metres of cladding is being removed and replaced over seven stages of work. On removal from the building, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) panels are transported by Panel Cycle to their approved facility for recycling.

Specialised equipment separates the steel sheet and polystyrene insulation. These separated materials are then reused for manufacturing here in Australia.

As a business, Panel Cycle also sends recycled polyethylene to Plastic Forests where the material is manufactured into a range of products including, wheel stops, bollards and flexible formwork.
