Project Verde


$22 million

Delivery Method LS


Significant reductions in greenhouse emissions and landfill was just a part of its capability; Sacyr’s Project Verde was the most advanced organic waste processing facility in Australia. Recycling over 120,000 tonnes of green waste per year, the 16,000m2 facility transforms what has historically been discarded as landfill into thousands of tonnes of high grade compost for Melbourne gardens and parks. This long term, commercially sustainable solution benefits us all: our Client, our community and our planet.

Delivering the project ahead of program, within budget and with a perfect safety record, the Hansen Yuncken team provided innovative, real-time responses to significant challenges. Quick strategic thinking in response to unfavourable ground conditions allowed the project team to generate budget for Sacyr, redesigning and renegotiating associated works on site without compromising quality. Recovering over $300,000 through a smart methodology, Hansen Yuncken stabilised the ground under the warehouse using a custom combination of lime and cement, and set tight but realistic revised program targets for project stages to progressively reduce lost time and ultimately finish early.
