Living Earth Organics Processing Facility Rebuild

Organic Processing Plant, Bromley, Christchurch

The February earthquake seriously damaged the composting chambers at the Living Earth Plant in Bromley.

In order to provide some continuity of service for the plant, the rebuild of the chambers by  Ebert Construction was carried out in two stages.

Each stage comprised of 90 wall panels cast in advance using special concrete to minimise the damage from the organic materials.

A number of further panels were supplied for the upgraded service buildings on the site.
