From Waste Land to Residential Using Repurposed Tubulars

Using John Lawrie Tubulars’ repurposed tubular products and bespoke procedures saved this project 2,400.93tCO2e. (That’s a 97.21% saving over the production of new prime steel products).

Project Summary

Roger Bullivant Limited (RB) was employed to install tubular steel piles required to support a new housing development at Waterfront Plaza, Leith, Edinburgh on behalf of Cala Homes (East) Scotland and Port of Leith Housing Association.

The Waterfront Plaza, phase 1 of 4, is a residential transformation of long-term disused land at a prominent section of Leith’s waterfront, including the creation of 388 new homes along with 1500sq.m of flexible workspace. 

John Lawrie Tubulars supplied 8316m of 178mm diameter pipe that were installed to depths of up to 14m and 10,016m of 244mm diameter pipe which were installed to depths of up to 16m, all of which were repurposed from the north east of Scotland’s oil and gas industry.

Due to adverse ground conditions, steel tubulars were the selected piling method for this project, and thanks to the reduced carbon footprint of our repurposed steel tubulars, a reduction of 2,400.93 t CO2e was achieved.
