Doocey Group invests in Elite’s Precast Legato Blocks and three Zappshelters

In January 2020 the recycling division of a leading multi-disciplined civil engineering and utility contractor, the Doocey Group, contacted Elite Precast Concrete Ltd about their Legato interlocking blocks. Doocey were planning to contract three new covered storage areas for their recycled construction and demolition waste and utility excavation arisings and the Legato blocks manufactured by Elite provided the ideal way of both segregating the recycled materials and of supporting Zappshelter’s tension membrane roof system.

Shortly thereafter Doocey Recycling took delivery of Elite’s Legato blocks and within a three-day period they built the walls themselves. Zappshelter were then on site to erect three new 14m x 12m roof structures with the result that Doocey are now able to carry out the recycling operations whilst keeping the finished products at a consistent moisture content and correctly segregated.  The shelters have also enabled the recycling operation to introduce SMR a soil stabilising process, increasing the percentage recycled which further helps to reduce the Doocey Group carbon footprint.

Roger Summers, Business Development Manager for the Doocey Group commented – ‘’Elite’s help early on, delivery, products and price were first class, which helped the whole project run very smoothly and on budget. I would highly recommend Elite to anyone who needs their products’’
