Construction sector in Leeds sees record number of completions

The annual report, which is based on the twelve months from January 2016 – December 2016, is seen as a barometer for developer sentiment and future supply, which suggests more success for the city over the next year and beyond.

Where old Leeds, becomes new Leeds
Whitehall recycling site in New Farnley, owned by Morley-based Mone Brothers, is where the old meets the new!

Mone Brothers’ Operations Director Steve Horsley has been overseeing the operations for the past ten years at Whitehall and in that time it’s been transformed into a large part of Mone Brother`s business and a critical part of the region’s recycling sector.

Steve explained: “Put simply New Farnley is where the old, demolished architectural landmarks of Yorkshire are recycled and re-used to play their part in a new look, ever evolving construction landscape.

“We take in on average 2500 tons of demolition and landscaping waste per week and it all goes back out of the door as recycled aggregate for construction, utility companies and the general public. Nothing goes to waste. This is real green thinking in action and proof that recycling can become a commercial success.

“From large construction companies looking for thousands of tons of Recycled Type 1 aggregate to a homeowner wanting a bag of glass sand, every customer is valued and every customer is playing their part, often unwittingly, in the environmental revolution that has taken hold in recent years,” added Steve.

New Farnley is one of four sites owned and run by Mone Brothers. Founded in 1965 by three brothers, the business now operates out of its HQ in Morley with commercial quarrying operations at Eggborough, near Selby and at Blackhill Quarry in north Leeds.

Steve went on: “Our Whitehall Recycling Depot in south Leeds was purchased in the late 1980`s and was mainly used for producing 6F2 recycled material and topsoil. It was not until 2008 that we started to produce Recycled Type 1 under the YHAUC (Yorkshire Highways and Utilities Committee) accreditation.

“Since then the aggregates industry when it comes to utility reinstatement and highways construction has moved forward with SMR, (Structural Materials for Reinstatement) raising the bar in quality.

“We’ve always aimed to stay ahead of the curve and we’ll soon be adding Hydraulically Bound Materials (HBM) to our offering. These are soils or aggregates that have a binder added which then hardens by a chemical or hydraulic reaction with water.

“All of our aggregates are tested on a weekly basis at an independant UKAS accredited. The aggregates we supply are definitely fit for purpose whether that be for massive construction concerns such as Morrisons or Mrs Jones from Bramley who wants to transform her back garden. Quality is key,” he added.

“We have teamed up with three firms across the region to ensure aggregates conform to the most stringent YHAUC standards. We are currently working closely with Mike Wakefield Tippers of Hull, Barnsley-based E J Lidster and Beverley aggregates firm Yarrows to ensure their operations hit the YHAUC benchmarks.

“The evolution of this site over the past decade has been made possible by an enlightened attitude from the management at Mone Brothers and a great set of employees. They have all bought into the ideas I had when I took over this site.

“The landscape of this five acre site has changed significantly since 2006. Instead of what appeared to be an enormous pile of muck stretching along the perimeter, we have now leveled the site off, invested heavily in screening, crushing and other plant machinery and introduced easily accessed bays for everything from river sand to topsoil to Bramley Fall stone.

“The results are clear to see in the bottom line!” concluded Steve.

Like the rest of the team at Mone Brothers he’s fully aware that where there’s muck, there’s brass!
