Carey Group Plc
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the Carey Group is a leading family-owned construction business, operating across the UK and Ireland. Formed in 1969 by the three Carey brothers, the company has continued to evolve and grow over the decades, developing new capabilities through innovation and learning.
Our Group companies provide specialist construction services - asbestos removal, demolition, civil engineering, dry lining and house building together with resource recovery services across multiple sectors. We deliver an extensive range of engineering, build and construction services and have helped to construct some of the most prestigious projects in the UK. Through our unique self-delivery model, we offer a diverse range of specialist construction and resource recovery services, which are complementary and enable us to effectively meet a variety of project challenges.
Seneca Resource Recovery specialises in the processing of a wide range of waste types, including by-products of construction and demolition streams. Our Wembley facility handles up to 400,000 tonnes of material per year. It processes construction waste from Carey Group projects across London, segregating and recycling a broad spectrum of materials, such as stone, soil, metals, plastics, cardboard and wood. The remaining non-recyclable, materials from the sites are processed into secondary fuels for recovery at energy from waste (EfW) plants - supporting Seneca`s long-standing achievement of 100% landfill diversion.
Extensive land remediation experience
We have successfully carried out a substantial amount of land remediation works, using our in-house remediation equipment to remove contamination and clear the way for development on numerous sites across the UK.
Our in-house remediation team relies upon the expansive skills and knowledge of a collection of experts in the field, such as asbestos removal specialists from ION Environmental and decontamination professionals from Careys Civil Engineering - who work under the direct supervision of our earthworks and remediation manager. We also provide waste recovery services, through Seneca Resource Recovery.
Remediating the former Ford Dagenham site
Carey Group company, Scudder Demolition, is principal contractor on the project to demolish and remediate the former Ford Dagenham Stamping and Tooling Operations plant. On this vast site - which has a demolition boundary of approximately 20 hectares - we utilised the complementary services of fellow Carey Group company, ION Environmental, to help remediate the land, prior to beginning demolition works.
Additionally, Carey Group companies, Seneca Resource Recovery and Careys Design Team, have contributed significantly to our ability to successfully carry out this important project, which aims to prepare the site for a new residential development of more than 10,000 homes.
On the Ford Dagenham project, we have benefited from our in-house fleet of specialist equipment - especially our multimillion-pound soil engineering plant. This plant - which is deployed under our Environment Agency Mobile Plant Licence - has enabled us to process excavated materials, up to hazardous waste classification. It enhances our capacity to remediate contaminated sites by allowing us to recycle materials and produce coarse and fine aggregates, which can then be reused on other projects.
