|Welfare facilities that had been present at this quarry since the 1960s had become progressively inadequate. With the strong involvement of the workforce, new facilities were developed, including:
? Canteen, first aid and training room
? Separate toilet and shower facilities for male and female employees
? On site water treatment
? Power and communication provision
? Car access, parking and pedestrian walkways ensuring segregation from large quarry vehicles.
The new buildings feature cavity block walls and tiled roofs with solar panels, which will give them a life-span beyond that of the quarry.
